The Gibraltar Port Authority on Wednesday (27 January) said Shell has successfully completed its application formalities and the grant of a port operator licence by HM Government of Gibraltar has been approved.
“I am pleased to see that Shell has been successful in its application and welcome the trust and confidence that Shell continues to place in Gibraltar with the completion of its application,” said Minister for the Port, the Hon Vijay Daryanani.
“The Gibraltar Port Authority now looks forward to working with Shell to further develop the range of bunkering service as the Port of Gibraltar to include LNG bunkering. This is in line with the aspiration to keep Gibraltar on the leading edge of developments in the bunkering industry and to reinforce our position as a bunkering hub.”
Chief Minister, the Hon Fabian Picardo QC MP, welcomed this news and said: “I am delighted that a prestigious entity such as Shell should be operating from Gibraltar Port.”
“Including LNG bunkering as one of the services on offer at our port demonstrates our forward thinking approach to developing the maritime industry, as well as ensuring that Gibraltar is part of the transition to cleaner fuels and reduced environmental impact.”
