    SEA\LNG coalition adds JAX LNG, Petronet LNG, and Toyota Tsusho Corporation

    SEA\LNG, the multi-sector industry coalition aiming to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, today announced the addition of three new members to the coalition. JAX LNG, Petronet LNG Limited, and Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC), have joined SEA\LNG to support the coalition’s goal of creating the necessary confidence in the shipping sector to drive an effective and efficient global LNG value chain by 2020.

    JAX LNG, LLC is a partnership created to bring secure liquefied natural gas supply to Florida. The partnership was formed in 2015 and brought together Pivotal LNG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Southern Company Gas, and NorthStar Midstream, backed by funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. JAX LNG is constructing a state-of-the-art liquefaction and LNG storage facility with marine and trucking loading capabilities in Jacksonville, Florida. The new facility is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2017. The project includes an initial liquefaction capacity of 120,000 gallons of LNG per day and 2 million gallons of on-site LNG storage.

    Petronet LNG Limited, one of the fastest growing companies in the Indian energy sector, has set up the country’s first LNG receiving and regasification terminal at Dahej, Gujarat, and another terminal at Kochi, Kerala. The Dahej terminal has a nominal capacity of 15 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA), which is being expanded to 17.5 MMTPA by 2019, and Kochi terminal has a capacity of 5 MMTPA. The company has four long-term chartered LNG ships transporting LNG from Qatar and Australia to Dahej and Kochi, India. In addition to re-gasification services, through its Kochi LNG Terminal, Petronet LNG is also offering LNG bunkering, gassing up and cooling down, as well as storage and re-loading services.

    Toyota Tsusho Corporation is the sole trading company of Toyota Group. Toyota Tsusho Petroleum Pte. Ltd. (TTP) is a wholly owned subsidiary of TTC, a supplier and trader of bunker fuel worldwide with a presence in over 150 ports, supplying over five million tonnes of bunker fuel every year.

    SEA\LNG recently announced an MoU with the Society for Gas as Marine Fuel (SGMF). The MoU creates a framework for how the two complementary organisations will work together to achieve their common goal of making LNG the fuel of choice for the shipping industry.
