    SEA\LNG coalition adds Marubeni

    SEA\LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, today announced that it has welcomed Japan-based Marubeni to its expanding membership. With the addition of Marubeni, the SEA\LNG coalition bolsters its efforts to drive forward LNG as a marine fuel, and to progress its vital role as a viable solution in the energy transition within shipping.

    Since its launch in July 2016, SEA\LNG’s membership has quickly grown from 13 to 25 members, clearly indicating the industry’s attention to LNG as a cost effective, safe and more environmentally friendly long term fuelling solution. In this short time the coalition has established itself as a key voice for maritime LNG development. The coalition continues to voice its views on the need to work collaboratively with key players across the entire LNG value chain, including shipping companies, LNG suppliers, infrastructure providers, classification societies, downstream companies, major ports, and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to break down the barriers to LNG uptake ahead of the global sulphur cap from 2020.

    Founded over 150 years ago, Marubeni Corporation has extensive knowledge and experience of importing and exporting products, providing services and business investments for a broad range of sectors, including energy, chemicals, as well as power, logistics, and infrastructure projects. The company has been involved in LNG industries by equity participation in liquefaction projects, trading, gas-fired power projects, and owning LNG carriers. The company also has a history of bunker fuel trading for more than 40 years.

    SEA\LNG and its member organisations continue to advocate for the need to collaborate, demonstrate, and communicate on key areas such as safety, regulation, emissions, and the economic case, to provide the confidence and demand required for an effective and efficient global LNG value chain by 2020.
