Marubeni, PTT to Study LNG Bunkering at Thailand’s Port

Marubeni Corporation and PTT Public Company Limited started a joint feasibility study with an aim to launch LNG bunkering at Thailand’s largest industrial port.

The study has a goal of implementing LNG refueling to ships in Laem Chabang Port, which handles more than 8,000 ships annually.

A third expansion plan is being carried out with the demand for LNG bunkering expected to grow in this area due to increased exports and the tightening of environmental regulations from 2020.

The joint study will verify the feasibility of an LNG bunkering project that utilizes a fuel supply ship that is compatible with an existing PTT managed LNG receiving terminal in Map Ta Phut, located in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) in Thailand.
