Preem Signs Agreement for Renewable Maritime Fuel

0
Nordic gas sector and energy market expert, Gasum, has entered into an agreement with Sweden’s largest fuel company, Preem, to supply their tankers with a new fuel blend consisting of liquefied natural gas and 10% of renewable liquefied biogas. This is the first agreement that involves Gasum delivering a blend containing renewable fuel to a maritime customer on a regular basis. It will contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions even further.

Preem’s vessels supplied with Gasum’s blend of renewable maritime fuel are the time-chartered tankers Tern Ocean and Thun Evolve.

“Maritime transport is an important part of Preem's operations. We are very pleased to be able to introduce renewable liquefied biogas into our fuel mix. This opportunity supports our high-end sustainability requirements,” says Anna Karin Klinthäll, manager trading operations at Preem.

Using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as maritime fuel reduces emissions significantly compared to conventional fuel, such as heavy fuel oil. It improves local air quality and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 20% when compared to conventional fuel. LNG is the most environmentally friendly fossil shipping fuel, meeting both current and long-term environmental requirements set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

By using 100% renewable liquefied biogas (LBG), the emissions of greenhouse gas will be reduced even further. LBG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 85% when compared to fossil fuels. 

“Gasum is committed to working for a carbon-neutral future and helping our customers to reduce their own carbon footprint by providing cleaner energy. We are happy to support Preem towards greener shipping and particularly their vision of leading the transition towards a sustainable society,” says JacobGranqvist, sales director, Maritime, at Gasum.

Gasum continually develops its fuel offering and services to answer to the future needs of the maritime segment. The company will continue to invest in the LNG and LBG supply chain and work together with maritime partners towards a cleaner future.
