Petronas to Start Commercial LNG Bunkering by January: Press

Malaysian state-run Petronas is ready to provide commercial LNG bunkering services by January 1, 2020, company’s vice president LNG marketing and trading Ahmad Adly Alias said September 12 during an event in Kuala Lumpur, reported state news agency Bernama.

He said the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) decision to implement sulphur cap on marine fuel beginning January next year has triggered a further transition to LNG as an alternative and cleaner bunker fuel option.

“The LNG share of bunker market is expected to increase up to seven per cent by 2030 from less than three per cent today,” the news agency quoted him as saying.

In November last year, Petronas achieved a milestone with the successful completion of its first LNG bunkering operation at its Pengerang LNG regasification terminal.
