The implications of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) revised rules for marine sector emissions will undoubtedly have far-reaching consequences, but how the new mandates may impact pricing for liquefied natural gas (LNG) remain unclear.

Natural gas giant Qatar Petroleum (QP) and the No. 1 gas seller, Royal Dutch Shell plc, are partnering to provide global marine bunkering services, a growing infrastructure need.
Nearly two years after the 350-mile Mariner East (ME) 2 pipeline was first expected to enter service, natural gas liquids are still not moving through as an Energy Transfer Partners LP (ETP) subsidiary continues to work through regulatory delays.
Mexico’s plan to createstrategic inventories of natural gas could generate investment opportunities of up to $2 billion, according to Infraestructura Energetica Nova (IEnova).
Canadian producers can break into liquefied natural gas (LNG) without waiting for stalled multibillion-dollar overseas export projects by fueling vessels instead of filling tankers, according to government- and industry-sponsored research.
Five requests to seismically survey parts of the Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast, a precursor to allowing oil and natural gas drilling, are once again under review by federal officials.
The British Columbia (BC) provincial government has stepped on the natural gas pedal to increase the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and renewable natural gas (RNG), or biomethane, in transportation, marine and other sectors.
In another legal victory for Sunoco Logistics Partners LP’s embattled Mariner East 2 (ME2) project, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court ruled 5-2 Thursday to uphold the pipeline’s powers of eminent domain as granted under state authority.
In a story published July 1, “Appalachian Basin Lacks Adequate NGL Storage, Pipelines For Demand, More Crackers” (see Shale Daily,June 30), NGI’s Shale Daily incorrectly stated that Sunoco Logistics Partners LP’s Mariner East 1 natural gas liquids pipeline could eventually be converted to carry natural gas if an expansion pipeline is built. Senior Vice President for Business Development Joseph Colella said that if the Mariner East 2X pipeline is built, the Mariner East 1 pipeline currently in service could be converted to natural gasoline or become a bidirectional line for refined products, such as gasoline, diesel or jet fuel, for example. All three Mariner East pipelines would have a combined natural gas liquids capacity of up to 745,000 b/d, and could not be scaled higher, as the article originally said. NGI regrets the errors.
The market for renewable natural gas (RNG) as a transportation fuel is growing, with new interest in Southern California and Scandinavia.
