The Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF) is a NGO established to promote safety and industry best practice in the use of gas as a marine fuel. It has Consultative Status with the International Maritime Organisation. The Society is governed by a representative Board, and driven by two principal Committees; Technical and Environmental.
SEA-LNG has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SGMF. SGMF was a 25% partner with SEA-LNG in commissioning the thinkstep (now Sphera) study into the Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission for LNG as a marine fuel. While SEA-LNG’s prime focus is to act as an advocate for LNG as a marine fuel, focused on the commercial and promotional aspects, SGMF’s focus is on the technical and operational of LNG and other gaseous marine fuels.
