LNG Shipping conference joins the LISW for 2019

Driven by new capacity additions, the growth in spot market trading and demand from new kinds of buyers, liquefied natural gas is steadily transforming into a globally traded commodity. But the LNG shipping segment is a constraining factor. Only a limited number of vessels are available to deliver LNG to buyers, which has left charter rates volatile, and prompted charterers to try to lock-in capacity early. Recognition about the need for more investment is growing. In 2019, LNG Shipping will be joining the roster of events making up the London International Shipping Week for the very first time. The conference will bring together leading figures from the natural gas and shipping industries to exchange views on how to stimulate growth in LNG carrier fleet capacity and increase returns across the LNG value chain. The agenda has been fine tuned to provide a balance between operational advice, LNG supply and demand fundamentals, and new innovations in vessel design and business strategy. Chaired by Andrew Clifton, GM & COO of SIGTTO, the one-day conference will cover:
  • Global fleet capacity: Are enough new vessels being built? Is there enough shipyard capacity available to meet growing demand?
  • New vessel technology: OSV to regas vessel conversions and retrofitting old vessels to FSUs.
  • Bunkering operations: Prospects for growth in demand, including new sectors like the cruise industry.
  • Financing: which investment models are viable?
Top speakers confirmed so far include:

  • Melanie Lovatt, Finance Advisor, Poten & Partners
