Port of Long Beach joins LNG coalition

SEA-LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition that drives global adoption of marine LNG, welcomes the Port of Long Beach (POLB), the United States' second busiest container port, to its membership.

POLB is the third North American port to join the coalition and brings SEA-LNG’s count of port members to a total of seven among the top twenty global ports.

Peter Keller, chairman of SEA-LNG, said, “Ports are critical links in the bunker supply chain and we are excited that the Port of Long Beach has joined the coalition to drive forward our vision of a competitive global LNG value chain for a cleaner maritime shipping towards 2050.”

POLB has made reductions to its local NOx, SOx and diesel particulate emissions since 2005. Its Green Ship Incentive Programme — established as part of the Clean Air Action Plan in collaboration with the Port of Los Angeles — offers financial incentives for ships with the newest engines or an equivalent NOx-reducing technology.

“Allying with groups like SEA-LNG is part of being ready for the market’s growing demand for LNG fuel.”, commented Port of Long Beach executive director Mario Cordero.
