It is rare for the major LNG carrier owners to all be in one place at the same time, but between Posidonia and the recent Capital Link event we got to hear from some of the key players on the main industry topics
LNG has the potential to revolutionise emerging industries in countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. AG&P president of LNG marketing Karthik Sathyamoorthy explains how to establish a viable supply chain to support this transition
A string of deep-water discoveries in the Caribbean has triggered a torrent of activity in the offshore supply industry, as one nation after another invites the exploration industry to drill for hydrocarbons in the hope of making another bountiful find.
In October, a landmark transfer of LNG took place at the Norwegian port of Herøya, from the 15,600 m3 small-scale LNG carrier Coral Energy to the terminal on shore, using the Universal Transfer System (UTS).
Japan would have far fewer than the 33 LNG import terminals it has if its terrain was less mountainous. Unable to lay down a nationwide gas pipeline grid, the country needs a dense network of receiving facilities and small-scale delivery systems to transport LNG beyond the busy coastal conurbations.
Saga LNG Shipping plans to launch a fleet of up to 20 midsize LNG vessels, ranging from bunker vessels and coastal carriers to floating storage and regasification units. Founder David Wu and chief executive Truls Rosenberg talk gas-to-power opportunities and explain why LNT A-box will become a game-changer for containment systems.
The Philippines does not yet import LNG but will have to satisfy a projected power-demand growth of 60 per cent by 2030. Karen Thomas looks at the opportunities and challenges ahead for this nation of islands and asks Manila-based Atlantic Gulf & Pacific about its LNG ambitions
Maritime Battery Forum’s annual conference, WATTS UP is back for the sixth time. The two days will include insightful and exciting presentations. The ship visit with dinner will be on board the Color Hybrid ( the world’s largest plug-in hybrid passenger vessel).
