Norwegian oil major Statoil has selected Gas4Sea partners to be its liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine fuel supplier in the Dutch port of Rotterdam for four crude shuttle tankers.

The four planned dual fuel vessels are scheduled to come into service in early 2020. They will be operated by Statoil in Northern European seas.

Under the contract with Statoil, Gas4Sea partners, including Engie SA, Mitsubishi Corp and Nippon Yusen Kaisha, are to supply the new ships with LNG using the Engie Zeebrugge, which started operations earlier this year.

With an LNG capacity of 5,000 m3, Engie Zeebrugge is currently performing regular ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services in Belgium’s port of Zeebrugge. It is designed to serve a full range of shipping customers, in Zeebrugge as well as neighbouring ports.

Gas4Sea was launched in 2016 to develop the use of LNG as a sustainable, reliable, safe and cost-effective alternative to conventional oil-based marine fuels. The parties earlier said that Gas4Sea aims to lead innovation through the ship-to-ship supply of LNG for the maritime sector.
