LNG

We provide an extensive range of commercial expertise and solutions along the entire LNG marine supply chain, to an increasing number of existing and new customers active in this rapidly-expanding and specialised sector.

LNG is natural gas refrigerated to its liquid state as a means of transportation and storage. Demand for this clean fossil fuel continues to rise as it plays a significant role in the energy mix of developed nations and increasingly energy hungry emerging markets. New LNG supplies coming on-stream, new entrants and a growing trading activity are driving the demand for shipping and its associated infrastructure beyond its traditional model.

LNG vessels have specialized cryogenic handling equipment and cargo containment systems able to carry LNG cooled to -160° C. With a rapidly evolving LNG market, newer vessels are being designed and built to incorporate continuous technical innovations; noticeably increased cargo carrying capacity, more efficient hull designs and propulsion systems, enhanced cargo insulation and improvements of on-board liquefaction and re-gasification.
