VANCOUVER, BC – Nigel Kuzemko, Chief Executive Officer of Steelhead LNG, announced today the appointment of two new members to the company’s executive team.
Paul Sullivan, formerly Senior Vice President of Global LNG and Floating LNG (FLNG) at Worley Parsons Group, has been appointed Vice President, Projects. Mr. Sullivan has had a long career in engineering and construction, with more than 25 years managing liquefied natural gas (LNG) import and export projects. He previously led the FEED group at British Gas, where he was involved in the development, from concept to implementation, of the company’s liquefaction and regasification projects. He was instrumental in developing Atlantic LNG, British Gas’ first grassroots liquefaction project in Trinidad. He has also previously served as the Development and Projects Director for Whessoe Oil & Gas, where he was responsible for front end engineering, product innovation and project development, together with operations responsibility for the western hemisphere, India and East Asia.
“Steelhead LNG is at an exciting point and has the potential to be a game changer in the LNG industry,” said Mr. Sullivan. “I look forward to overseeing the next phase of development of the company’s At-Shore LNG export projects, which have the potential to deliver some of the lowest cost LNG to international markets.” (read more…)By MarEx 2016-10-31
On Monday, the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) unveiled a new recognition program for clean operators that will help them to get ahead of the pack for transit bookings.
“We’re rewarding those who make conscious efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and invest in technology that will make shipping even more efficient,” says Panama Canal Administrator Jorge L. Quijano.
The ACP calls the new system “Environmental Premium Ranking.” The Canal has an existing ranking system for customers which it uses when figuring out bookings for transits, based in part on how often a vessel operator uses the canal.
The new system gives two levels of extra recognition to clean ships, with many ways of qualifying. Vessels with EEDI efficiency numbers 20 percent below baseline get Level 1; 30 percent below baseline, Level 2. There are similar provisions for the Environmental Ship Index and for NOx emissions, and any vessel with an LNG-fueled engine qualifies for Level 2 – giving LNG carriers an automatic leg up.
HELSINKI — Finland says it will start to operate the world’s first icebreaker powered by liquefied natural gas on Tuesday as the number of LNG-powered vessels is steadily increasing in the Nordic country that is surrounded by the Baltic Sea and is heavily reliant on maritime transport.
The state-owned operator Arctia Ltd. said on Monday that the 128 million-euro ($140 million) Polaris icebreaker, which also runs on low-sulphur diesel, is equipped with two large LNG containers allowing it two operate for 10 days in rough ice conditions without refueling.
