The Hague-based LNG giant Shell has announced two significant milestones for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine fuels business in northwest Europe.

Shell's ultra modern bunkership Cardissa Western LNG BV Trading Rotterdam BV (Shell) has arrived in Rotterdam.
This seaworthy ship enables Shell to supply customers across Europe with liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Gas Access to Europe (Gate) terminal in Rotterdam. The Cardissa can transport 6,500 m3 of LNG.
Shell also finalised a long-term agreement with a joint venture between Victrol NV and CFT to charter a LNG bunker barge with a capacity to carry 3,000 cubic metres of LNG fuel.
Operating out of Rotterdam, the LNG bunker barge will provide additional flexibility to bunker a range of customers, including vessels operating on Europe's inland waterways.
"LNG as a marine fuel has an important role to play in the future energy mix," said Steve Hill, Executive Vice President of Shell Energy.
"With these bunker vessels, as well as the Gate terminal, Shell is demonstrating its commitment to building a robust and reliable supply chain to meet customer needs. With tougher emissions regulations on the horizon, we will continue to work closely with our customers and partners on cleaner energy solutions," Steve added.
