Past event: LNG Bunkering Summit North America 2023

Driving The Decarbonization And Sustainability Of The North American Maritime Sector

To accompany our Global LNG Bunkering Summit, the most established event in the industry, we’re delighted to announce due to great demand, the return of the LNG Bunkering North American Summit. Our inaugural North American Summit, coming to Miami 14th-16th November 2023, will look at the viability of LNG as a long-term solution, explore the viability of AMFs and provide insights that cannot be found anywhere else into the decision making, planning, development, operation, safety and training processes that are driving the LNG Bunkering market in the region forward.

With industry-leading partners already on board and an incredible community built up over ten years of running the Global Summit, this inaugural event is not to be missed. Join us in Miami to discuss the future of the industry and gather in one place with the major players from the entire supply chain: Shipping companies, Law-makers, Ports, Terminals, Oil and Gas companies, Financiers, Classification Societies, Technology Providers and many more!

Agenda themes include:

  • Regulations: Receive updates on regulatory developments from government officials from across the region and learn of new opportunity and how to prepare for the future appropriately
  • Decision making: Hear predictions, forecasts and future trends to help understand commercial viability and suitability for LNG now and into the future
  • Finance and funding: Discover alternative finance options and successful strategies to secure your investment
  • Port perspectives: Avoid project pitfalls through understanding common challenges global ports overcame from planning through to operation
  • Regional Opportunities: Hear from projects from all across the region - Canada, US, Central America and the Caribbean – on plans for the future, ongoing projects or operational facilities
  • Shipping perspectives: Review alternative methods of Marine Fuel and discover how major shipping companies approached their conversion and vessel options
  • LNG supply chain: Learn how North American ports are realizing their supply chain management process and associated LNG Infrastructure challenges
