Seaside LNG joins SEA-LNG, and calls for accelerating LNG infrastructure

Houston-based Seaside LNG, an LNG production and maritime transportation logistics provider, has become a member of SEA-LNG, a prominent industry coalition dedicated to demonstrating the advantages of the LNG pathway for reducing shipping emissions.

Seaside LNG is the sole company in North America with integrated shoreside liquefaction, LNG storage, and bunkering capabilities, with the largest fleet of Jones Act-compliant LNG barges in the region and has executed more than 400 LNG transfers. As such, Seaside LNG brings a wealth of expertise to the coalition, particularly in the realms of supply, infrastructure, and safety.

“Green fuel solutions will not arrive in a big-bang process; instead, we will see the incremental decarbonisation of existing assets as fuel production, transportation, storage, and bunkering infrastructure and engine technologies develop,” said Peter Keller, Chairman of SEA-LNG. “In Seaside LNG, we have another valuable member to help us continue to evolve and progress the LNG pathway to decarbonisation. We are very pleased to welcome the Seaside team onboard.”

Rapid growth in LNG infrastructure to sustain a global LNG supply chain, is needed, said Tim Casey, CEO of Seaside LNG. He stressed the importance of enhancing commercial-scale solutions for marine fuel, which is vital to achieving

the industry’s environmental objectives while meeting the increasing commercial demands of the global market.

While much of the recent industry discourse has focused on the development of infrastructure and the introduction of eco-friendly fuels, the coalition believes it is essential not to overlook the immediate benefits LNG offers in terms of local emissions reduction. Bio-LNG offers a net-zero pathway for owners who have invested in LNG as a marine fuel to cut their emissions. Fuels can be blended with fossil LNG or used as a drop-in fuel for LNG-fuelled vessels to reduce emissions further without any additional investment in vessel or infrastructure modifications.
