Port of Rotterdam informed on Wednesday that seagoing vessels bunkering liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the port will receive a 10 percent discount on gross seaport dues.

About 1.5 million euros has been reserved by the Port of Rotterdam Authority for the scheme that will apply until 2020, according to the port’s statement.

In addition to the new incentive, the port authority will support the Environmental Ship Index and the Green Award by providing 1.5 to 2 million euros in incentives.

It also intends to spur LNG bunkering in support of the shipping sector and firms like Shell and Gate that advocate the use of LNG.

Shell recently began the construction of its LNG bunkering vessel at STX Offshore & Shipbuilding and signed a deal with Containerships of Finland. Under the agreement, Shell will provide LNG as fuel to Containerships’ two 1.400 TEU container ships when its bunker vessel becomes operational in mid-2017.

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.
