SEA\LNG, the industry coalition promoting the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel has been joined by Japan-based Marubeni.

The coalition added that with the addition of Marubeni it will boost 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 grown from 13 to 25 members.

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, the statement reads.

Marubeni has been involved in LNG industries by equity participation in liquefaction projects, trading, gas-fired power projects, and owning LNG carriers.
