Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar and Lloyd’s Register have reached an agreement to commence scoping requirements for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) storage and bunkering in Gibraltar as part of a broader energy refurbishment that includes dual fuel for power generation.
The agreement was formed at a meeting between Chief Minister Fabian Picardomet and Lloyd’s Register Chairman Thomas Thune Andersen, held at Lloyd’s Register’s headquarters in London this week.
The parties agreed on the importance and viability of LNG as a clean source of energy and for the commercial development of Gibraltar’s port. This included agreement on the importance of LNG bunkering to the port’s commercial development and to the cruise industry.
