Aligning the LNG business case for LNG providers, shipping operators, and ports
Why should you be thinking about LNG?
The answer is simple. If you're involved with marine fuel in any capacity, from facilitating the supply chain to considering conversion as a ship operator, LNG is the buzz word of the moment. And rightly so. LNG as a marine fuel reduces sulphur oxide emissions by between 90 and 95 per cent and nitrogen oxide emissions to comply with IMO Tier III limits. Its lower carbon content reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 20 to 25 per cent. In addition, the prices for LNG in Europe and the USA indicate that LNG could be offered at a price comparable to heavy fuel oil. It's clear that there is a commercially robust and environmentally viable argument for the use of LNG as a marine fuel.
So where do you fit in the equation?
Right here. Join us for the upcoming LNG Bunkering Summit North America, where ship operators, LNG providers, ports, technology specialists and regulatory bodies will gather to discuss crucial progress on the LNG bunkering front. Benefit from a series of regional case studies and feasibility reports from North American leaders along with presentations from LNG bunkering pioneers in Europe.
Highlights for this year's summit include
- Infrastructure: Get an in-depth perspective on the growing LNG infrastructure networks developing throughout North America, with presentations from LNG America, Clean Energy Fuels, Fortis BC and Gaz Metro
- Commercial feasibility of LNG bunkering: How can your company benefit economically and commercially from LNG bunkering? With sessions from Lloyd's Register and CPCS, learn how key players in the space propelling the use of LNG as a marine fuel forward
- End user case studies: Presentations by industry leaders as Tote Inc and Jensen Maritime who are pioneering the use of LNG as a marine fuel in North America
- Port panel: Hear how leading ports are preparing for LNG demand, with an interactive discussion panel with organisations as the Port of Long Beach and Jacksonville Port Authority
- Developing regulations: How does LNG differ from conventional fuels? Find out how regulations are developing across North America, with an overview from the US Coast Guard
- European perspective: Hear from pioneers as Port of Amsterdam in the LNG bunkering space looking at the opportunities and challenges in LNG fuelling for marine vessels
