Russian oil producer Gazpromneft on Thursday (30 July) said it has become the first Russian oil company to become a member of the SGMF (Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel) association.
More specifically, the operator of the bunkering fleet Gazpromneft Marine Bunker – Gazpromneft Shipping became a member of SGMF, it said.
The international SGMF community unites over 140 companies: bunkering companies, producers and suppliers of NGV fuel, shipping companies and operators of LNG infrastructure facilities, it explained.
“Liquefied natural gas (LNG) has significant potential as a marine fuel due to its environmental characteristics that meet the requirements of the International Convention MARPOL-2020 both in terms of sulfur content and concentration of nitrogen compounds,” said Alexey Medvedev, CEO of Gazpromneft Marine Bunker
“Participation in the work of an authoritative international community will allow us to unite efforts to develop infrastructure LNG projects in Russia and abroad, improve standards and regulations, develop the best industry practices for the production, logistics and bunkering of NGV fuel.”
“We welcome a new member of the LNG Bunkering Association – Gazprom Neft, which uses the best practices and technological solutions in its work,” added Mark Bell, General Manager of SGMF.
“I am confident that the advanced developments and experience of the Russian company in the implementation of its own LNG projects will make a significant contribution to the development of the entire industry.”
Gazpromneft Marine Bunker has previously announced plans to commence LNG bunkering services by 2021.
