Methane slip from LNG-fuelled vessels is a recognised problem that the maritime industry has been actively addressing for well over a decade. SEA-LNG is disappointed to see the ongoing campaign of misinformation that misrepresents the progress the industry has made, and is continuing to make, to reduce slip.
SEA-LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition established to demonstrate LNG’s beneﬁts as a viable marine fuel, announces the membership of Port of Zeebrugge, the innovative seaport of Bruges which has been at the cutting-edge of LNG bunkering for decades.
SEA-LNG fully supports the objectives of the European Commission to create a common regulatory framework to address maritime greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the European Green Deal objectives, while emphasising its preference for new regulations to be set at the global, IMO, level.
Industry coalition stresses that LNG fuels reduce up to 23% of GHG emissions, and that bio- and synthetic-LNG offer low risk, incremental pathways to net zero.
The addition of Puget LNG strengthens SEA-LNG’s membership base on the North American west coast and underlines the increasing accessibility of LNG as a marine fuel across the globe.
New information share agreement aims to increase visibility in fuel bunker pricing and improve decision making around the viability of using LNG to power fleets
Bio-LNG provides competitive advantage, providing favourable finance longer through greater emissions reductions
Liquefied Bio Methane and Liquefied Synthetic Methane have the potential to be available, scalable, with costs similar to other low and zero-carbon marine fuels
