  • TotalEnergies, Chevron, Seapeak, have joined the Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation Initiative (MAMII), led by SafetyTech Accelerator.
  • The three companies join the now more than 20 members of MAMII.
  • The three companies will bring their valuable insights and commitment to MAMII’s mission: tackling the critical challenge of ‘methane slip’.

Leading energy companies, TotalEnergies and Chevron, and major gas carrier, Seapeak, have joined the Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation Initiative (MA-MII), led by SafetyTech Accelerator, reports Safety4sea.

The three companies join the now more than 20 members of MAMII, emphasising its pivotal role in addressing methane abatement within the maritime sector.

Tackling the critical challenge of ‘methane slip’

Chevron, a global energy company, Seapeak, an owner-operator of liquefied gas vessels, and TotalEnergies, the world’s third largest LNG player, will bring their valuable insights and commitment to MAMII’s mission: tackling the critical challenge of ‘methane slip’.

The initiative has selected four providers to produce feasibility studies on the technologies which will reduce methane emissions from ships, with further details to be released soon.

The release of unburnt methane is a key obstacle to unlocking the full environmental potential of LNG as a maritime fuel. Now in its second year, MAMII was launched in September 2022 by Safetytech Accelerator, bringing together industry leaders, technology innovators, and maritime stakeholders to advance technologies for measuring and mitigating methane emissions in the maritime sector.

To date, MAMII has produced a comprehensive technology landscape report, covering regulatory requirements, ‘Well to Tank’ and ‘Tank to Wake’ analyses, and cost-benefit assessments for its members. The initiative curated an ecosystem of 27 companies specialising in methane capture, measurement, and abatement, with 13 actively engaged with MAMII partners.

MAMII is currently focussed on ‘on-ship’ trials, expanding the range of pilots, and starting to address fugitive methane emissions covering the entire spectrum of methane emissions on LNG-fuelled vessels.
