Gas i tanken - Ett realistiskt alternativ?: En studie av LNG som alternativt bränsle för industri, sjöfart och kraftproduktion

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie bestod i att undersöka den rådande situationen för LNG som ett alternativt bränsle för industri, sjöfart och kraftproduktion. Informationsinsamling och granskning genomfördes i enlighet med en litteraturstudie, och dess resultat gav en övergripande bild av vad som hänt på området fram till nu. Man fick även viss insikt i hur LNG som bränslealternativ förväntas utvecklas framöver. Syftet med undersökningen var att kunna påvisa hur långt utvecklingen har kommit, med avseende på LNG och dess infrastruktur.

Slutsatser som kunde dras var att man kommit en bra bit på väg, där vissa sektorer hunnit längre än andra. Ekonomiska och miljömässiga skäl framstår som drivande faktorer för de parter som överväger att introducera LNG i sin verksamhet. Bristande infrastruktur anges av många som den främsta orsaken till att man inte kommit längre i utvecklingen. Flertalet mottagningsterminaler för LNG har redan etablerats runt om i Nordamerika och i nordvästra Europa, varav en hittills har färdigställts i Sverige. Sannolikt kommer fler att uppföras under de kommande åren, med ökad tillgänglighet för industri, sjöfart och kraftproduktion som följd.

Abstract [en]

The main focus of this study was to examine the current state of LNG, and its applications as an alternative fuel for industry, shipping and power production. Gathering of data, and the subsequent scrutiny of the collected material, was performed in accordance with the methodology of a literary study. The result offered an overall view of what has happened up until now. It also suggested what possible developments might follow in the near future. The purpose of the study was to describe how far the development has progressed, with regards to LNG and its infrastructure.

The conclusions that could be drawn from the study were that things are moving forward. Some sectors have however reached further than others. Economic and environmental reasons appear as main driving factors for those who are considering LNG as a part of their plan of operations. Lack of infrastructure is said to be a key reason why LNG still hasn´t gained momentum. Numerous LNG-terminals have been built in North America and around northwestern Europé, including one in Sweden. More facilities are being built in the years to come as well, steadily improving the availability of LNG.
