Gasum, Pavilion to Develop Global LNG Bunkering Network
Finnish gas firm Gasum has teamed up with Singapore's Pavilion Energy to develop a global LNG bunker supply network for their customers in Singapore and northern Europe, including the major port region Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp, Gasum said on October 8.
The partners have signed a memorandum of understanding on using each other's LNG bunkering infrastructure and supply capabilities in their respective regions to serve customers.
"Pavilion Energy is thrilled to partner with Gasum and provide customers with a wide supply LNG bunker network for ocean-going vessels sailing between the Far East and northern Europe," Pavilion CEO Frederic Barnaud said. "We will complement this alliance with additional LNG bunkering partnerships in the Mediterranean, north Asia and the Americas. Our network will combine global commercial offerings with regional operational expertise and bring further momentum to the emergence of a thriving LNG bunkering industry."
Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen said the partnership supported its goal of establishing a worldwide partner network. The company, which earlier this year bought the German LNG bunkering firm Nauticor, has five LNG bunkering vessels of its own as well as several LNG terminals in the Nordic region.
