LNG stakeholders will meet onboard Fjord Line’s LNG powered ferry

The upcoming international conference “LNG – best fuel of the future!” will take place onboard Fjord Line’s LNG powered ferry M/S Stavangerfjord. Bringing together buyers and sellers from all Baltic Sea Region, the event will give an ideal platform to get the latest news on LNG technologies, legislation and funding possibilities, explore new markets and become a part of the current and future LNG supply chain.

On 10-12 April 2018, the ferry will host participants, representing business organisations from Denmark, Lithuania, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Poland. Professionals will meet to exchange ideas and opinions about LNG development, to review LNG regulatory landscape, deepen technical and scientific knowledge.

International conference is to be held within the framework of the Go LNG project that has brought together 18 partners from 7 countries.

The speakers list includes the delegates of the international companies Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore, Kosan Crisplant, Nauticor GmbH&Co KG, DNV GL, Fjord Line A/S, SkanGas etc. Academic institutions, such as World Maritime University, established by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), and Maritime University of Szczecin will also send their delegates to share their presentations.

Formal sessions and discussions will be coupled with matchmaking meetings, possibility to experience the bunkering of M/S Stavangerfjord and guided tour “LNG from the Engine room to the Bridge” – the programme will ensure that attendees were given meaningful time and outstanding networking opportunities.

Organisers of the upcoming conference highlight that new investments are required worldwide to meet the growing LNG demand: “It is time for the Baltic Sea Region LNG Cluster companies and businesses to demonstrate their vast knowledge, cutting edge technologies and newest innovations to the world”.

The global demand for LNG is expected to increase 4-5% pr. year between 2015 and 2030. Most of the future LNG growth is anticipated to be created by further floating storage regasification units (FSRUs), the declining domestic gas production, small scale LNG and the transport sector.
