Large LNG carriers built, and on order are without exception equipped with conventional steam turbine propulsion plants. However, the level of bunker oil costs today, reflecting how highly energy at present is valued, has strongly urged designers and operators of LNG ships to seriously look into ways and methods for saving energy as one of several means of optimizing the cost efficiency of marine transport of liquefied natural gas.

This present paper describes how the different subjects have been dealt with in achieving this target, and the alternatives on the selection of machinery and operational modes, including ship speed, in order to arrive at noticeably more energy economic LNG-carriers
