There are 42 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) ships planned for North America, according to a recent survey by Texas-based Zeus Development Corporation, which suggests the region is now leapfrogging Europe in embracing LNG as an economics-based fuel of choice.

The projects consist of ferries (17), tankers and bulk carriers (12), offshore service vessels (6) including the region’s first LNG vessel – Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Harvey Energy, container vessels (6) and an articulated tug barge.

Of the 42 projects, 12 aim to convert existing vessels.
