Shell Downstream LNG

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with around 94,000 employees in more than 70 countries and territories. We use advanced technologies and take an innovative approach to help build a sustainable energy future. Shell is a pioneer and a leader in the LNG industry. We helped design and build the first commercial onshore LNG plant and the world’s first LNG Carriers in 1964 – and have been designing and building such ships and plants ever since. We bring 50 years’ experience in handling, storing and transporting LNG and over 100 years in the maritime industry with Shell’s first oil tanker in 1890. Shell has interests in over 2000 vessels on the water in any given day, manages and operates more around 40 LNG carriers delivering approximately 30 million tons of LNG per year and has been involved in the design and construction of 28% of the world fleet. At Shell we use this knowledge and expertise to extend the LNG market beyond its current primary use of generating electricity and power, into transport.

Within the ReaLNG project, will help develop the infrastructure and mature the supply chain for LNG as a Marine Fuel in Europe, by developing a specialized 6,500m3 LNG bunker vessel, an innovation in the LNG bunkering market! The LNG Bunker Vessel will be built by South Korea’s STX Offshore & Shipbuilding. Shell’s ability to operate the vessel, levering 50+ years’ experience in LNG Shipping, will serve marine customers in the port of Rotterdam well, and allow delivery to LNG-fuelled vessels in northwest Europe.

Shell has been a continual developer and innovator in the oil and gas sector leading the application of best practice industry standards.

To meet growing global demand for transport, we believe a range of different vehicles, ships, and fuel options will be required. It will take time and effort to develop a mature LNG for transport market. However, this effort is justified by the benefits: a source of cleaner and affordable energy for powering ships, heavy-duty trucks and trains.

Shell currently charters the world’s first 100-percent LNG-powered carriers, the Greenstream and Green Rhine. The year 2015 also marked delivery of two LNG-fuelled Offshore Supply Vessels (Harvey Energy and Harvey Power) into Shell’s charter portfolio supporting deep water operations in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, Shell also is the first customer of a new, dedicated LNG for transport infrastructure at the Gas Access To Europe (Gate) terminal in the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and has committed to buy storage capacity from the Gate terminal, to enable terminal expansion. The new LNG for transport infrastructure, called a ‘break bulk’ terminal, includes the construction of a new purpose-built small scale jetty. The new jetty will increase availability of LNG as a transport fuel for vessels in northwest Europe.

Havenbedrijf Rotterdam N.V., Port of Rotterdam

The Port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest sea port. With a total length of more than 40 km and an annual throughput amounting to some 450 million tonnes, approximately 30,000 seagoing vessels and 110,000 inland vessels visit the port of Rotterdam every year. The port is known for its outstanding accessibility for sea-going vessels and for its intermodal connections.

Import and export of LNG for use in Europe takes place on a large scale at Port of Rotterdam. Through the Gate terminal, the liquefied natural gas arrives by LNG carriers from the Middle East, Australia and Asia and other locations in the world. The port of Rotterdam also plays a leading role in the introduction of LNG as a fuel for shipping and road transport.

Port of Rotterdam contributes to ReaLNG by upgrading its port infrastructure to realise mooring locations and facilities that can facilitate LNG bunkering.

Hansestadt Lübeck, Lübeck Port Authority

The Port of Lübeck – as a core port in the TEN-T Transport Network corridor 5 – is the 3rd largest seaport in Germany and the largest RoRo-ferry port in the Baltic Sea region. The overall port area is about 375 hectare and the port has a total quay wall of ±31.6 km with 40 berths. The Port of Lübeck covers mainly 9 terminals located along the river Trave with modern cargo handling equipment and highly trained staff. All terminals have excellent links with the hinterland and are accessible by road, rail and inland waterway craft.

The Port of Lübeck has a very good network of ferry connections as well as intermodal services connections. That means over 100 short sea ship departures per week to the main partner harbours (Trelleborg (SWE), Malmö (SWE), Helsinki (FIN), Hanko (FIN), Liepaja (LET), Kotka (FIN) and St. Petersburg (RUS)) and to the ship schedule related intermodal connections (80 trains per week) to the following main destinations: Ludwigshafen, Duisburg, Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Hamburg (all GER) and Verona (ITA).

Since January 2008 the Lübeck Port Authority (part of the public administration of the City of Lübeck) is solely responsible for the management of all port infrastructures and finance as well as the operation of the port railways.

The Lübeck Port Authority contributes to ReaLNG by upgrading its port infrastructure to facilitate LNG bunkering in the future. Upgrades include the construction of LNG supply infrastructure and preparations for a purging facility. | | |
