OMV Petrom announced that it has made the first liquefied natural gas delivery to Damen Shipyards Mangalia. The product was used to fuel a ship equipped with LNG engines, the first ship of this type, built in Romania, at the Damen shipyard in Mangalia. LNG is a transitional alternative for a cleaner transport, especially for the transport segments that are more difficult to decarbonise such as heavy road freight and naval transport. By using LNG in transportation, the CO2 emissions decrease by 15%, the nitrogen oxide emissions drop by 50% and the heavy particles are 99% lower. In addition, LNG does not generate sulfur emissions and this way is compliant with the strict provisions of International Maritime Organization.
