LNG Bunkering & Refuelling Conference, Americas

29 July 2020 - 30 July 2020
09:00 - 18:00
Jacksonville

COVID-19: Our primary concern is that of the health and safety of our clients, colleagues and staff. Following guidance and direction provided by international governments, regional health authorities and the World Health Organisation (WHO), we have made the difficult decision to postpone LNG Bunkering & Refuelling Conference from May until 29-30 July this year. Further COVID-19 information and updates can be found here.

 



 

Explore the developments, opportunities and innovations in LNG as a marine fuel market

Shipping is under intense pressure to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions, requiring vessel owners to adopt less carbon-intensive fuels and choose alternative energy sources. LNG as a marine fuel has emerged as one of the primary choices as shipping moves towards cutting its CO2 emissions by 50% by 2050.

With a significant increase in the number of LNG-fuelled ships in operation, on order and under construction, investments are being made in new small-scale liquefaction, LNG bunkering vessels, refuelling and port facilities to serve this burgeoning market.

During an intensive, two-day programme, renowned industry experts will examine in individual and panel presentations recent regulatory, safety, financial and operational developments in the LNG as a fuel market.

Key industry players from across the supply chain including vessel owners and operators, LNG terminals and ports, energy majors, charterers, equipment and service providers, regulators and industry associations will discuss the challenges that lie ahead, examining the bottlenecks that need to be overcome to underpin the growth of the LNG as a marine fuel market.

Early bird rate - US$1200
Ends 17 June 2020

Standard delegate rate - US$1400
