Gas4Sea partners sign LNG bunkering deal with Equinor

Marine LNG Zeebrugge, a joint venture of Gas4Sea partners Engie, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK, has signed an agreement with the Norwegian energy group Equinor for supplying four crude shuttle tankers with LNG marine fuel in the port of Rotterdam.

The four planned dual fuel vessels are to come into service in early 2020 and will be operated by Equinor in Northern European seas.

Marine LNG Zeebrugge will utilise LNG bunkering vessel Engie Zeebrugge, which has an LNG capacity of 5,000 cu m, for the bunkering operations.

Engie, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK launched Gas4Sea in 2016 to jointly market the ship-to-ship supply of LNG marine fuel around the world.

“Transitioning to a low-carbon society is one of the key issues that the management is seeking to address and respond to in order for the company to achieve sustainable growth. MC is developing the LNG marine fuel supply business as one which will contribute to efforts aimed at simultaneously generating economic value, societal value, and environmental value for societies,” Mitsubishi Corporation said in a release.
