SEA\LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, Thursday welcomed Mexico-based ÉNESTAS to its membership coalition.
ÉNESTAS is the largest private LNG company in Mexico and with the largest LNG distribution network.
Mr. Caio Zapata M, chief executive officer, ÉNESTAS, said:
“We expect LNG to become the dominant fuel for transportation by road, rail, and sea,” said Caio Zapata M, CEO of ÉNESTAS.
“LNG is currently the most safe, clean, and economically viable marine fuel on the market and will continue to substitute diesel as the fuel of choice. We’re excited to be part of SEALNG and to work with our fellow members to promote knowledge and understanding of the full benefits that LNG has to offer.”
The addition of ÉNESTAS bolsters SEALNG’s efforts to drive forward LNG as a marine fuel, and to progress its vital role as a viable solution in the energy transition within shipping.
“SEALNG continues to unite organisations from across the LNG value chain to address market barriers to LNG uptake, and to help transform the use of LNG as a marine fuel into a global reality,” said SEALNG chairman and executive vice president, TOTE Inc., Peter Keller.
“With several ports under development in North America, including in the Gulf of Mexico, we look forward to leveraging ÉNESTAS’ vast network and capabilities within the region to support the continued growth and investment in LNG bunkering infrastructure.”

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and MPA is working closely with other agencies to monitor the situation, both globally and in Singapore, the port authority tells Manifold Times.
Caroline Yang, President of SSA, addresses issues earlier raised by players; including PMC No. 04, the seven-day restriction, contactless bunkering, sampling point, hose connection, and more.
IBIA Asia, ABIS, sources from Singapore’s bunkering and surveying companies, and an industry veteran share with Manifold Times the issues expected from MPA’s latest Covid-19 measures.
The top three positive movers in the 2020 bunker supplier list are Hong Lam Fuels Pte Ltd (+13); Chevron Singapore Pte Ltd (+12); and SK Energy International (+8), according to MPA list.
‘We will operate in the Singapore bunkering market from the Tokyo, with support from local staff at Sumitomo Corporation Singapore,’ source tells Manifold Times.
Changes include abolishing advance declaration of bunkers as dangerous cargo, reducing pilotage fees on vessels receiving bunkers, and a ‘whitelist’ system for bunker tankers.
