Finnish shipping company Containerships is aiming to continue its growth through investment in LNG technology during 2017. 

The group, that currently has over 40 LNG-fueled trucks in use will add four LNG-fueled container vessels, one in each quarter of 2018.

“The aim is to be the first company to offer a full transport chain based on LNG-powered solutions in its market area,” the company said in its latest report.

Containerships signed a shipbuilding contract with Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China for the construction of four LNG-fueled container ships with an option for additional four vessels.

The vessels with a capacity of 1,400 TEU that will be operating in Baltic and Nordic sea are built in co-operation with the ship management company Nordic Hamburg.

Containerships have already made a €17.2 million (Approx: US$18.3 million) prepayment for the four LNG-vessels, with further payments to be made once the vessels enter service. The company also received the support of European Union with a €2.2 million prepayment for the project. EU’s total support for the project totals €17 million.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
