Linde North America will be presenting a paper at the first annual LNG for Marine Transportation USA conference. The event will focus on how to build an LNG fuel supply chain for the Marine Market.
It will be held in Houston, Texas, on June 11-12 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Houston-Greenway Plaza. Bryan Luftglass, head of Strategic Market and Business Development for Linde North America, will deliver the presentation “LNG Supply Security: Ensuring There is Enough LNG to Meet Demand in the Long Term” on Tuesday, June 11, at the session on Logistics and Supply.
“It’s critical to address the future availability of LNG in North America and ensure there is enough to serve the marine industry as demand grows.” Luftglass said.
“We need to address the needs of the industry to increase the availability of LNG and get it to customers. It’s a classic chicken and egg dilemma,” added Luftglass.
“How can we justify infrastructure investment without proven demand? But how can we prove the demand without initial investment?”
Linde is one of the few companies in the world that can deliver a complete solution for LNG. From liquefaction and the safe and reliable delivery, handling and storage of cryogenic liquids to bunkering, vaporizing and dispensing, Linde provides an end-to-end solution for customers looking to reduce fuel costs and environmental impacts.
“The LNG for Marine Transportation USA conference is an ideal venue to describe our current leadership in Europe and demonstrate Linde’s capabilities for the emerging marine market here in North America,” says Luftglass
