8General Dynamics NASSCO has announced that it has christened and launched the LNG conversion-ready ECO Class tanker, Palmetto State, at San Diego Bay, US.
8The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted authorisation for Sabine Pass Liquefaction LLC and Sabine Pass LNG L.P. to commence service for liquefaction and export activities from Train 3
Philly Shipyard Inc. (PSI) – the sole operating subsidiary of Philly Shipyard ASA – has announced that it has delivered the second of four next generation 50 000 DWT product tankers being built for the Kinder Morgan Inc. subsidiary, American Petroleum Tankers (APT).
8The Port of Rotterdam Authority has announced that it will carry out a joint study with the National LNG platform, focusing on opportunities to develop LNG from renewable sources as a transport fuel in the port. Using bio LNG, as opposed to regular LNG, will allow users to decrease CO2 emissions. In addition to this, the emitted CO2 from bio LNG is part of a short cycle: CO2 emissions are actually neutralised by the associated CO2 uptake. In other words, bio LNG is a sustainable option that can be used as a standalone fuel, or mixed with fossil-based LNG.
8Tellurian Inc. has announced that Driftwood LNG LLC and Driftwood Pipeline LLC (its wholly owned subsidiaries) have completed the pre-filing phase and collectively submitted a formal application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate an LNG facility and pipeline.
8SEALNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, has announced the addition of three new members to the coalition. JAX LNG, Petronet LNG Ltd, and Toyota Tsusho Corp. (TTC), have joined SEALNG to support the coalition’s goal of creating the necessary confidence in the shipping sector to drive an effective and efficient global LNG value chain by 2020.
