Titan LNG, liquefied natural gas supplier to the marine and industrial markets in North West Europe, said it has significantly reduced the bunkering time during an operation at the port of Amsterdam last week. 

The company has bunkered the Swedish M/T Fure West in Amsterdam on May 19, using equipment that combines the flow from 2 trucks into 1 bunkering hose, named the T-piece.

The equipment reduces the time required for the truck-to-ship bunkering operation compared to sequential truck deliveries. The combined pumping rate reached 28 tons/hour.

During the port call, six trucks in total were delivered using the T-piece, Titan LNG said in its statement.

Didier de Beaumont, commercial manager, Port of Amsterdam said, “the procedure was permitted at the ‘Groene Kade’ LNG quay by the Port of Amsterdam Harbourmaster based on a quantitative risk assessment.”

This makes the port of Amsterdam “the first in the wider region that is able to approve the simultaneous discharging of 2 trucks,” he said, adding that the port authority expects this efficiency leap to accelerate the transition to LNG as a marine fuel.

Titan LNG’s Michael Schaap noted that the new technology is a new step forward in preparation for the launching of the company’s LNG bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler, next year.

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.
