Nobu Su, chairman of Today Makes Tomorow (TMT) said on Tuesday several patents enabling possible construction of a hybrid ice class LNG ship have been registered in 2015. 

The two registered patents are called Hybrid Ship and the Mahoubin Bottle Shape LNG tank, Nobu Su said in a statement.

The Hybrid Ship patent consists of a conventionally driven main propeller and an electrically driven duct propeller together while the Mahoubin Bottle Shape LNG tank, which received a patent from the Japanese Patent Office, open the possibility of developing the first hybrid ice class LNG vessel.

The concept has been revealed to the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) and other IACS members in order to address the upcoming Polar-class regulation and cut on CO2 emissions, especially while using the Arctic route.

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.
