International oil and gas company Total has joined multi-sector industry coalition SEA\LNG, which was created to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel.
In 2015 Total’s LNG production was 10.2m tons. Its aim is to double its liquefaction capacity to around 20 Mt/y and increase its LNG trading portfolio to 15 Mt/y by 2020.
Peter Keller, SEA\LNG Chairman, said: “SEA\LNG is pleased to welcome Total. The company has significant LNG interests integrated across its supply chain and ambitious growth plans. We look forward to working together with the aim of delivering significant business and environmental benefits to the shipping industry.”
Olivier Jouny, Total Marine Fuels Managing Director, said: “Our mission, as an integrated oil company, is to offer global and compliant solutions to our customers to meet the 2020 Global Cap requirements recently set by the International Maritime Organization”.
