The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) established to promote safety and industry best practice in the use of gas as a marine fuel. Governed by a representative Board and driven by two principal Committees, SGMF has several working groups at any one time solving issues and producing outputs such as Guidelines and checklists for the industry. The Society has produced four ISBN publications in the past two years and has over 120 international members ranging from oil majors, port authorities, fuel suppliers through to equipment manufacturers and classification societies.
In March 2017, SEA\LNG and SGMF signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), which creates a framework for how the two complementary organisations will work together to achieve their common goal of making natural gas the safe and sustainable fuel of choice for the shipping industry.
