Another Step Forward for Marine LNG Fuel

Thursday, 12 October 2017 | 16:00

It is all coming together now, we are seeing real traction for LNG as a fuel. The shipping industry is preparing to lower emissions come January 2020. First step is sulphur but there will be more to come. This is where MarineLNG fuel offers that one step forward that not only addresses the issue today but also allows to take a significant step forward on NOx or Particulate Matter. Even on Green House Gasses (GHG) it makes a relevant contribution to lower emissions.

Therefore it was great to see a few things come together that the team has been working on for quite some time. Over the last two weeks we have had significant events with customers in Rotterdam and Singapore. We introduced to Carissa, our LNG bunker vessel, in Rotterdam together with our anchor customers (Containerships Oy, Carnival Cruise Corporation, Sovcomflot, van der Kamp) and key stakeholders such as the Port of Rotterdam. Below a few links to the coverage of that event.

A few days later we had a dialogue with key customers in Singapore to understand their choices, challenges and we could share how at Shell we offer solutions with different fuels and lubricants. Not only LNG but recognising that there are different choices points for each vessel and trade pattern.

Then, last week, we were able to announce the signing of a key contract with SIEM Car Carriers. This is another first given these vessels will be sailing between the US and Europe for Volkswagen.

At the same tie we are starting up operations in Singapore. The next global port to offer LNG bunkering. Two weeks ago, FueLNG, our joint venture with Keppel in Singapore, completed its first delivery to provide bunkers to Golar Hilli (a Floating LNG).

It may still be too early to tell, but this could be the beginnings of a “Cool Revolution”.
