French LNG supplier Axegaz, on Monday said its LNG Motion project could be awarded €27.8 million grant from the Connecting Europe Facility for Transport (CEF-T). 

Axegaz noted in its statement that the project has been included on the proposed funding decision by the European Commission.

The project encompasses a study to evaluate the commercial, operational, technical, regulatory and environmental aspects of LNG fueling in truck transport. In addition, the feasibility of using bio-LNG as a fuel option and a standardized LNG fueling payment system will be studied.

“Axègaz will perform a real-life trial in which 42 LNG fueling stations are constructed across Europe. The stations will be located along the TEN-T core network corridors covering France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Spain, Italy, Hungary and Romania,” the statement reads.

In addition to the LNG fueling stations, 200 LNG trucks will be deployed across the EU to gather data. while 400 more will be invested in, outside of the scope of this action.

The action goes in hand with the European Union’s policy to reduce CO2 emission and promote the use of alternative fuels.

The proposed funding decision is subject to formal approval by the Connecting Europe Facility Coordination Committee which will convene on July 8, and the decision is expected before the end of July 2016.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

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.
