Past event: LNG Bunkering Summit

The Only Mediterranean LNG Bunkering Event Focussed on Investment, ssLNG Operations, Decarbonisation and Alternative Marine Fuels.

LNG Bunkering Summit: Mediterranean Forum is the only LNG focused event connecting ship-owners, ship-designers/builders, fuel providers, port authorities, terminals and regulatory bodies in the Mediterranean. Taking place a few short months before the 2020 IMO deadlines, this event will consider what fresh opportunities we're likely to see in the Mediterranean within the next 10 years, with covering themes including:
  • Investing in LNG - how can you build a greater business case for LNG to increase stakeholder appetite to invest?
  • ssLNG - Can small-scale LNG solutions be the answer to bridging the LNG adoption gap?
  • Alternative marine fuels - hear from leading innovators and R&D labs on the exciting new technologies they're exploring
Join us to explore what new opportunities these topics will unveil in the Mediterranean.

Agenda themes in 2019 include:

  • Regulations: Receive updates on regulatory developments across within the EU and their potential impact on projects in the Mediterranean region
  • Decision making: Hear predictions, forecasts and future trends to help understand commercial viability and suitability for LNG now and into the future
