Marine LNG Zeebrugge, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering joint venture of the Gas4Sea partners ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK, on Tuesday (19 February) signed a LNG bunker supply agreement with Norwegian multinational energy group Equinor.
The contract oversees the supply of LNG marine fuel to four crude shuttle tankers at the port of Rotterdam.
The four planned dual fuel vessels are to come into service in early 2020; they will be operated by Equinor in Northern European seas.
Marine LNG Zeebrugge will supply LNG using the LNG bunkering vessel ENGIE Zeebrugge which started operations in 2017. She is currently performing ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in the port of Zeebrugge, in Belgium.
ENGIE Zeebrugge holds an LNG capacity of 5,000 m3 and is designed to serve a full range of shipping customers.
