Shell plc and Chevron Corp. affiliates have signed deals to help cut emissions and further the use of LNG in the shipping sector.

Shell said late last month that it would further long-standing collaboration with Hapag-Lloyd by signing a multi-year agreement to supply the global shipper liquefied natural gas for its 12 ultra-large, dual-fuel container vessels.

Shell, a major LNG portfolio player and the world’s largest trader of the super-chilled fuel, didn’t say how much or exactly how long it would provide supplies to Hapag-Lloyd. The company did say that the 12 vessels would start receiving fuel in the second half of this year in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
