  • Providing the LNG WinGD low-pressure dual-fuel main engine and two 3,500-m3 LNG storage tanks on the dual-fuel tanker is independent alternative fuels supplier Titan LNG, which has partnered with Petronas Marine.
  • This is the first fuel delivery under a contract agreement between Titan LNG and Koch Industries and marks another milestone for the Petronas-Titan collaboration.
  • The first LNG bunkering, undertaken at the port of Pasir Gudang, Malaysia, used Petronas’ long term-chartered barge Avenir Advantage, part of a growing fleet of LNG marine fuel bunkering vessels.

The ship-to-ship transfer (STS) bunkering of LNG-fuelled VLCC Yuan Rui Yang took place in the port of Pasir Gudang, Malaysia using Avenir Advantage.as stated in a recent publish by riviera.

Titan LNG is partnering with Petronas marine

Providing the LNG WinGD low-pressure dual-fuel main engine and two 3,500-m3 LNG storage tanks on the dual-fuel tanker is independent alternative fuels supplier Titan LNG, which has partnered with Petronas Marine – the marine solutions arm of energy multinational, Petronas – to deliver LNG under a term supply agreement to Yuan Rui Yang.

The first LNG bunkering and first fuel delivery

The first LNG bunkering, undertaken at the port of Pasir Gudang, Malaysia, used Petronas’ long term-chartered barge Avenir Advantage, part of a growing fleet of LNG marine fuel bunkering vessels.

This is the first fuel delivery under a contract agreement between Titan LNG and Koch Industries and marks another milestone for the Petronas-Titan collaboration, which has previously supplied LNG across Asia to vessels including Siem Aristotle and several other smaller vessels en route from Asia to Europe.

“As the LNG pathway gains recognition and momentum, taking a collaborative approach enables us to continue to deliver LNG safely across Europe, Asia and around the world,” Titan LNG commercial director marine Michael Schaap said. 

“Shipping companies such as Cosco and Koch… recognise the use of LNG as a marine fuel has a multitude of benefits: not only its negligible local emissions profile but its clear global emissions reduction pathway through the introduction of bio-LNG and hydrogen-derived LNG. This is why Titan is committed to providing access to LNG, and all commercially viable alternative fuels, enabling more shipping companies to start the journey towards a zero-carbon future today,” he said.
