Following elections last December, Tahir Faruqui and Xavier Pfeuty also join the SEALNG Board as new directors representing Shell and Total Marine Fuels respectively.

Welcoming them to the Board, reappointed Chairman Peter Keller said: “2018 was an exciting year for the LNG industry and our coalition. As our membership grew to 36 we welcomed Société Générale as our first financial institution and additional ports, including MPA Singapore. I am delighted to welcome Paul and Capt Segar as representatives from these organisations, as well as Xavier and Tahir to the SEALNG Board for 2019.

“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to our outgoing founding board members Yvonne van der Laan (Port of Rotterdam), Michael Chia (Keppel Offshore & Marine) and Lauran Wetemans (Shell) for their valuable participation as founding Board members of SEALNG. We have benefitted significantly from their leadership, dedication and guidance, and wish them all the best for the future. I would also like to appreciate the ongoing commitment of our other board members, all of whom possess a broad range of highly relevant skills and experience and a singular desire to drive forward our vision of a competitive global LNG value chain for cleaner maritime shipping towards 2020 and beyond.”

Throughout 2019, SEALNG will continue to unite key industry players from major LNG suppliers, downstream companies, shipping companies, infrastructure providers, and shipyards, to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), classification societies, port authorities, shipbrokers, and financial institutions, to address the commercial barriers to transform the use of LNG as a marine fuel.

Since SEALNG was established in 2016, the Board of Directors has remained responsible for the strategic development and oversight of the organisation’s vision, mission, objectives, and activities directed towards the accelerated use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel. The Board continues to play a critical role in representing the membership in key decision making, as well as promoting SEALNG initiatives.
