Port of Amsterdam and Titan LNG signed a long-term contract for the home location of Titan’s bunkering pontoon, the FlexFueler001.

The pontoon will be the first of its kind in Europe providing LNG bunkering services, Titan LNG said on Friday, adding the agreement underpins the ports’ ambition to facilitate the development of the LNG bunkering market in Amsterdam.

The central location in the America Harbour was selected to enable the transfer of LNG in various ways. Both trucks and LNG transport vessels can discharge LNG into the FlexFueler making it independent from the supply of large-scale terminals to load LNG.

The America Harbour is suitable to receive inland and seagoing vessels due to the draft of 9.70 meters alongside the FlexFueler. Normally, however, seagoing ships will be bunkered concurrent cargo operations alongside using a push boat.

LNG is rapidly becoming the fuel of choice for vessel owners and operators. Adoption is accelerating, as it is a cost-effective alternative. LNG is suitable for a wide range of vessel types and sizes and the use of LNG as marine fuel results in compliance with current and forthcoming IMO and EU regulations.

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.
