SEA\LNG – a multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of LNG as marine fuel – was launched in July 2016, and now has 25 members. Marubeni has significant knowledge and experience of both importing and exporting products, providing services and business investments for a broad range of sectors, including energy, chemicals, as well as power, logistics and infrastructure projects. The company has been involved in LNG industries by equity participation in liquefaction projects, trading, gas-fired power projects, and owning LNG carriers. It also has a history of bunker fuel trading for over 40 years.
The Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of Energy Division, Marubeni Corp., Akihiko Sagara, said: “Although our company has expertise in multiple sectors, we view LNG as a core business field within our multifaceted service offering. By embracing collaboration with stakeholders in related industries, we remain committed to safeguarding the global environment in which we operate, and are privileged to be partnering with a likeminded organisation. Together with our partners, we look forward to collaboratively working towards a cleaner, more efficient shipping environment.”
The SEA\LNG Chairman and Executive Vice President of TOTE Inc., Peter Keller, added: “Marubeni has a great wealth and breadth of expertise in relation to LNG and we welcome their knowledge as we continue to support the energy transition in shipping. SEA\LNG will continue to unite organisations that work together to address market barriers to LNG uptake, and to help transform the use of LNG as a marine fuel into a global reality.”
