ENEOS, Marubeni sign MoU for LNG-fuelled ethylene carrier in first decarbonisation move

17 Jan 2022

ENEOS Corporation (ENEOS) and Marubeni Corporation (Marubeni) on Friday (14 January) said they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the introduction of an environmental-friendly ethylene carrier (vessel) for ethylene delivery.

ENEOS as a producer of ethylene, and Marubeni as a sales and logistics provider, have supplied ethylene to customers over a long-time frame.

The parties have jointly considered carbon neutralisation in the ethylene supply chain in the MoU, and as a first step, ENEOS and Marubeni have decided to use a brand new environmental-friendly ethylene carrier, which will be chartered by Marubeni over the long term, for ethylene delivery commencing in 2024.

The vessel will be the first ethylene carrier equipped with a dual fuel engine (liquified natural gas/very low sulphur fuel oil) built for ethylene export from Japan, which can reduce emissions of carbon dioxide by roughly 40% compared to conventional ethylene carriers.

ENEOS and Marubeni intend to further develop carbon neutralisation in the ethylene supply chain in order to meet customer needs for low carbon and decarbonisation.
