PetroChina completes 1st STS LNG bunkering at Yantian Port
PetroChina completed its first ship-to-ship (STS) bunkering of an LNG-fuelled ship at the Shenzhen Yantian Port on November 22, its parent company CNPC said on November 24.
About 7,000 m3 of LNG was supplied to a containership owned by CMA CGM Group and the whole operation lasted for six hours, CNPC said. Yantian Port is located in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
State-owned CNPC said that the move will open up the market for LNG offshore bunkering in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, which extends across the two Chinese special administrative regions and nine Pearl River Delta cities.
The use of LNG as a fuel in the shipping industry has been gaining traction in China and the world amid a global push to reduce carbon emissions.
