3rd CORE LNGas hive Conference, Algeciras, 24th April

The third CORE LNG as hive Conference for the promotion of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the most sustainable fuel in the transport sector, particularly in shippingtook place in Algeciras last April 24th . The event was officially opened by Salvador de la Encina, the President of the Spanish Ports Authority; Gerardo Landaluce, the President of the Port of Algeciras Bay Authority (APBA); and Claudio Rodríguez, Enagás Gas Assets General Manager.

The latest developments in the project and the support offered by the European Commission and the Government of Spain for the promotion of the decarbonisation of maritime transport, particularly in ports, were explained at the conference.

The main progress made has been the adaptation and construction of infrastructure and the application of LNG to multimodal transport to enable small-scale and bunkering (ship refuelling) services with LNG to be provided in the Iberian Peninsula.

Study on LNG Supply Demand and Logistics Chains

In the course of proceedings, the Study on LNG Supply Demand and Logistics Chains was presented, together with an application for the design and parametrisation of LNG supply logistics chains. The application estimates that LNG supply at the port of Algeciras and other ports on the Strait of Gibraltar will be particularly competitive.
