Early Bird Registration Has Opened for HHPs 2017:
Natural Gas Fuel for High Horsepower Applications

Like the idea of running large, powerful engines on natural gas instead of diesel? Of all but eliminating the heavy pollution from ships? Driving the engines on frack spreads and oil production rigs on the gas that’s right there, rather than trucking in dirtier diesel?

LNG-fueled locomotives?

Mine trucks?

SGMF and SEA\LNG Sign MoU

March 22, 2017 in HHP Summit 2017, LNG, Marine by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

The Two Organizations Join Forces on a Common Goal:
‘Making LNG the Fuel of Choice for the Shipping Industry’

The new SEA\LNG coalition and SGMF, the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel, have signed a memorandum of understanding on how they “will work together to achieve their common goal of making LNG the fuel of choice for the shipping industry.”

“SEA\LNG and SGMF have separate but complementary missions, and we are both wholly committed to the development of natural gas as a marine fuel,” SEA\LNG chairman and Tote Maritime executive VP Pete Keller said in an organization release.

“This MoU will ensure that our efforts are concentrated on defined areas, enabling us to support each other successfully, and ultimately providing the confidence and demand required for an effective, efficient, and safe global marine LNG value chain by 2020,” Keller said.


‘Leverage’

“SGMF does not cover the commercial aspect and therefore it will be beneficial to leverage the work of SEA\LNG,” SGMF general manager and COO Mark Bell said in the SEA\LNG announcement. “The 100-plus members of SGMF represent the whole value chain from supply to end use,” he said.

SEA\LNG was launched in mid-2016 to break down the commercial barriers to the uptake of LNG as a marine fuel. Founding members included Carnival/Aida, DNV GL, Engie, ENN, GE Marine, GTT, Lloyd’s Register, Mitsubishi, the NYK Line, the Port of Rotterdam, Qatargas, Shell, Tote Maritime and Wärtsilä (HHP Insight, July 14, 2016).

SEALNG recently published a white paper titled Accelerating the Adoption of LNG as a Marine Fuel.

SGMF was formed as a spin-off from SIGTTO, the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators in October 2013, focusing on the safety, operational, and technical aspects of natural gas as a sustainable marine fuel (HHP Insight, October 2, 2013).

Data Sharing

“The two organizations have pledged to support each other by sharing knowledge, data, and information from their own areas of responsibility that will be of benefit to each other’s members,” the announcement states.

SEA\LNG notes that SGMF’s data set of publications, guidance notices, industry statistics, and studies “is now also available for leverage by SEA\LNG… “In return, SEA\LNG can support SGMF in promoting coherent best practice throughout the industry.”

SEA\LNG members are to meet at this year’s High Horsepower (HHP) Summit, just announced for November 6-9 at the Prime Osborne Convention Center in Jacksonville, Fla. – home of Tote Maritime’s two LNG-fueled container ships, the first of their kind in the world.
