Global multi-sector industry coalition SEA-LNG in August said its member Fortis B.C. commissioned Sphera (formerly Thinkstep), a global provider of Integrated Risk Management software, for a lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions analysis of its Tilbury facility.
The study found that on average Fortis B.C.’s LNG is produced with about one-third lower GHG emissions when compared to other production methods used by global LNG producers.
In particular, using LNG as a marine fuel from Tilbury could reduce GHG emissions coming into British Columbia by up to 27% due to the plant’s usage of clean, renewable hydropower as opposed to facilities that are powered by gas turbines, said SEA-LNG.
Efforts such as those by Fortis B.C are clear examples of why LNG as a marine fuel is best placed to tackle GHG emissions now, while paving a cleaner pathway to IMO 2050 thanks to liquified biomethane and liquified synthetic methane, it said.

Glencore purchased fuel through Straits Pinnacle which contracted supply from Unicious Energy. Contaminated HSFO was loaded at Khor Fakkan port and shipped to a FSU in Tanjong Pelepas, Malaysia to be further blended.
Individuals were employees of surveying companies engaged by Shell to inspect the volume of oil loaded onto the vessels which Shell supplied oil to; they allegedly accepted bribes totalling at least USD 213,000.
MPA preliminary investigations revealed that the affected marine fuel was supplied by Glencore Singapore Pte Ltd who later sold part of the same cargo to PetroChina International (Singapore) Pte Ltd.
‘MPA had immediately contacted the relevant bunker suppliers to take necessary steps to ensure that the relevant batch of fuel was no longer supplied. Further investigations are currently on-going,’ it informs.
