YOKOHAMA: International symposium on LNG Bunkering

On December 20, 2016 the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism informed a feasibility study report on the development of LNG (liquefied natural gas) bunkering hub at the port of Yokohama.

The Government of Japan, City of Yokohama, Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port CO., Ltd., and private enterprises will promote together the establishment of the LNG bunkering hub.

We will hold an international symposium on LNG Bunkering in Yokohama on April 3 to accelerate the efforts of stakeholders, toward the formation of a LNG bunkering hub and building of an international network.
