SEA\LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, has added Canadian LNG provider FortisBC its growing membership base.

“Our North American member network grows as the appetite for LNG as marine fuel expands across the globe,” Peter Keller, Chairman, SEA\LNG, said.

FortisBC brings to the coalition nearly 45 years’ experience in LNG production in Western Canada. It owns and operates two LNG facilities on the west coast; its Tilbury LNG facility began operations in 1971, while it’s Mount Hayes facility on Vancouver Island launched operations in 2011.

“Our work in LNG is an important element within our campaign to reduce emissions from our customer base by 30% by the year 2030 – one of the most ambitious emissions reduction targets in the Canadian utility sector,” Douglas Stout, vice-president of external relations and market development at FortisBC, added.

FortisBC has developed truck-to-ship bunkering solutions and technologies to advance the use of LNG in the domestic marine sector. A separate company, WesPac Midstream LLC, is proposing a marine jetty on the Fraser River adjacent to the Tilbury LNG facility to facilitate ship-to-ship bunkering for domestic and trans-Pacific vessels.
