‘Everyone wants to open up new LNG outlets, and that supports growth’: Gasum

Only Subscribers can read the full Article

For LNG bunkering to become a truly global business, interregional partnerships between segment players is the way forward, Kimmo Rahkamo, vice president, gas and power sales at Finland’s state-owned gas company Gasum, says in this exclusive interview. And even though the rollout of related infrastructure is often brought up as the main hurdle in LNG bunkering’s growth, there is plenty of appetite from investors to put money into it, Rahkamo stresses.

Meanwhile, rapidly growing demand for zero-carbon solutions from customers, both maritime and on land, is supporting the development of biofuels – but, Rahkamo stresses, the segment must remain ethical in its core. As far as hydrogen and other energy alternatives, such as ammonia, are concerned, the devil is in the detail: beyond the hype, and while research and discussion on their benefits continues in the public forum, what needs to be taken into consideration is the emissions profile of their supply chain, as well as their safety.
