Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan, Port of Marseille-Fos, and Port of Vancouver have joined the Port of Singapore and seven other organizations to participate in an international LNG bunkering port focus group.

The network of LNG bunker-ready ports aims to advance the use of liquefied natural gas a marine fuel, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said on Monday.

The focus group was first formed in 2014 by MPA, Antwerp Port Authority, Port of Rotterdam and Port of Zeebrugge.

Through the signing of a memorandum of understanding in Singapore in October 2016, all members of the focus group committed to developing a network of LNG bunker-ready ports across the East and West and Trans-Pacific trade.

The new expansion comes with the growing interest to supply LNG as a marine fuel to meet future demands of the shipping industry.
