LNG Bunkering Conference

29 January, 2018 - 31 January, 2018, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Regulation, Technology and Supply Chain Development to Drive LNG as the Fuel of the Future

Over the last 12 months, the ECA regulations have continued to drive many decisions in the LNG market. As new LNG infrastructure became operational, and with further projects in the pipeline, LNG as a marine fuel has seen more traction with new LNG vessels on order.

However, whilst the industry is on the cusp of dramatic change, it isn’t moving forward fast as original predictions suggested. Slow infrastructure development, the regulatory landscape and competition from alternative fuels are all contributing to the challenges in the sector.

It is clear that the industry must focus on partnerships and collaboration at a global level to drive LNG forward as the fuel of the future.

Now in its 6th year, the Annual LNG Bunkering Summit will unite global players from leading ports, LNG terminal operators, ship operators, ship owners, LNG suppliers, and LNG technology providers to develop strategic partnerships and common strategy to drive the LNG Bunkering market forward.

Those attending will spend three days hearing perspectives from the entire supply chain, offering their insights into their decision making, planning, development, operation, safety and training processes that have allowed them to successfully move forward in the LNG Bunkering market.

Agenda themes will include:

  • Regulations: Receive updates on regulatory developments across the globe, potential impacts and how to prepare appropriately
  • Decision making: Hear predictions, forecasts and future trends to help understand commercial viability and suitability for LNG now and into the future
  • Finance and funding: Discover alternative finance options and successful strategies to secure your investment
  • Port perspectives: Avoid project pitfalls through understanding common challenges global ports overcame from planning through to operation
  • Shipping perspectives: Review alternative methods of Marine Fuel and discover how major shipping companies approached their conversion and vessel options
  • LNG supply chain: Learn how EU ports are realizing their supply chain management process and associated LNG Infrastructure challenges
  • Operational challenges: Discuss potential challenges for machinery operation, risk management and safety
  • Workforce: Replicate proven concepts for training, developing, up-skilling and managing your future workforce
