The port of Vancouver on Friday (13 March) said it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Tomakomai Port Authority to promote the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel through the provision of LNG bunkering services at the Port of Vancouver and Port of Tomakomai.

The provision of LNG fuel for ships transiting between the ports of Vancouver and Tomakomai will reduce air emissions from shipping, protect air quality in port communities, and reduce contributions to global climate change. 

The Port of Vancouver and the Port of Tomakomai will actively exchange information and expertise on LNG bunkering, including technical procedures and best practices, and where feasible, coordinate port requirements and guidelines for LNG bunkering to facilitate use of LNG marine fuel in both ports.

The development of LNG bunkering services in the Port of Vancouver and Port of Tomakomai will enable adoption of LNG as a marine fuel by ships engaged in trans-Pacific trade.
