GLE members are interested in supporting the small scale LNG development in Europe. This development is strongly driven by policies and targets to reduce emissions in the transport sector. New emissions control regulations are making LNG an increasingly attractive option for the short sea shipping sector as well as for road transport.

On 13 December 2012 the GIE General Assembly approved the budget for a GLE study in 2013 on small-scale LNG development. In the GLE ExCom/Plenary held on 14 December 2012 the GLE members agreed to use this budget to develop a map showing the small scale LNG infrastructure in Europe.

The GLE small scale LNG map will support the Clean Power for Transport package from the European Commission not only by showing existing small scale LNG infrastructure and projects but also by identifying missing links in the network. In addition to the transport sector, the study shall support the development of the use of LNG in off pipeline locations.

The map shall be available by the end of 2013. For more details please see the scope of work attached.
