SEA\LNG is a multi-sector industry coalition, created to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel. Our vision is of a competitive global LNG value chain for cleaner maritime shipping by 2020
SEA\LNG brings together key players in the value chain, including shipping companies, classification societies, ports, major LNG suppliers, LNG bunkering companies, infrastructure providers and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), helping to break down the commercial obstacles to transform the localised use of LNG as a marine fuel into a global reality. Our current members include: ABS, Bureau Veritas, Carnival Corporation & plc, Clean Marine Energy, DNV GL, Eagle LNG Partners, ENGIE, Gas Natural Fenosa, GE, GTT, JAX LNG, Keppel Gas Technology, Lloyd’s Register, Marubeni Corporation, Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsui & Co., Ltd., Novatek Gas & Power, NYK Line, Petronet LNG, Port of Rotterdam, Qatargas, Shell, Société Générale, Sumitomo Corporation, Total, TOTE Inc., Toyota Tsusho, Uyeno Transtech, Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port Corporation (YKIP), and Wärtsilä. SEA\LNG is guided by a board, which is led by chairman Peter Keller. Each member organisation commits mutually agreed human resources, data analysis and knowledge sharing in support of SEA\LNG initiatives and activities.
The SEA\LNG coalition was established by Xynteo, a platform for galvanising leaders and catalysing ideas - and fusing them into new projects, for new growth.
SEA\LNG recognises that while LNG is a competitive fuel relative to current alternatives, LNG infrastructure is needed in ports around the world to enable quick, safe and cost effective bunkering. In parallel, there remains a price premium for LNG-fuelled vessels, which can make investment decisions challenging. Furthermore, regulation has not been globally consistent, which has constrained incentives for investment in technology and the supply chain. SEA\LNG aims to address and help overcome these and other challenges.
DRIVING THE TRANSFORMATION
As LNG continues to gain momentum SEA\LNG is also growing. We see that pressures are increasing from regulators, customers and communities to continue to tackle the environmental issues associated with the global shipping fleet. Meanwhile, we know that LNG is an economic, clean and safe marine fuel with increasing global availability, offering ship owners a real opportunity to improve the environmental performance of the industry. There is an opportunity right now for the marine transportation industry to help drive a major transformation around the use of clean and safe fuel. SEA\LNG is working to help accelerate that transformation by bringing together stakeholders from all parts of the marine LNG value chain to work together to address the commercial and regulatory barriers impeding its broader use as a preferred, environmentally friendly marine fuel.
