Gas4Sea Partners Sign LNG Bunkering Deal with Equinor
- Business & Finance
The Gas4Sea partners ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK have agreed with the Norwegian energy group Equinor to supply their four crude shuttle tankers with LNG as marine fuel in the port of Rotterdam.
The four planned dual fuel vessels are scheduled to come into service in early 2020. The units will be operated by Equinor in Northern European seas.
Marine LNG Zeebrugge, a joint venture of the Gas4Sea partners, will supply LNG using the LNG bunkering vessel ENGIE Zeebrugge, which started operations in 2017.
The vessel is currently performing ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the port of Zeebrugge, in Belgium.
ENGIE Zeebrugge holds an LNG capacity of 5,000 m3 and is designed to serve a full range of shipping customers.
