The paper discusses the influence of transportation
costs on the delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) by sea. The
research part of the project was carried out by using a dedicated
LNG Moss type carrier with the capacity of 205,000 m3 and by
taking into account the price of the propulsion engine fuel, LNG,
as one of the most important factors of the final cost of LNG
transportation. The fluctuation of the final costs also depends
on the price of construction of a new vessel, the vessel’s design,
sufficient number of the vessels required for transportation, and
the amount of cargo to be shipped from a load port to the import
terminal. The port of Murmansk, possibly one of Russia’s largest
LNG load terminals, was used as port of departure, i.e. port of
load. The final destinations, i.e. import terminals, included the
ports of Zeebrugge, South Hook, Cove Point, Chiba and Fujian. It
should be noticed that this study involved two sailing routes, the
Suez Canal and the North East Passage, taking into consideration
the harsh weather conditions the vessels might encounter during
