The shipping industry is facing increasing claims to meet restricted environmental regulations and escalating operation costs. To mitigate these problems, cleaner and more cost-effective fuels are required to power the new generation of vessels. Currently, the high speed ferry sector is using lightweight diesel engines burning distillate fuels. However, the increasing demand for higher installed power requirement in such vessels, coupled with fuel costs, has placed further constraints on this sector (Bennett 2011). Liquefied natural gas (LNG), which meets these new requirements, is now becoming popular as an alternative fuel in this sector. Liquefied natural gas is obtained through natural gas liquefaction by cooling it to approximately 162 °C at atmospheric pressure. This process reduces the volume approximately 600 times; hence, it is more competent for transportation and storage compared to conventional hydrocarbon fuels (Ramos et al. 2014).
