Marubeni and Teekay Join Sea NG in Global Alliance
Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Sea NG Corporation said that Marubeni Corporation and Teekay Shipping Corporation have formed an alliance with Sea NG for the worldwide commercial deployment of Sea NG's Coselle system for transporting compressed natural gas (CNG) by ship.
The Coselle ship is the only marine vessel fully approved by any international marine classification society for the carriage of CNG. Coselle ships will transport moderate volumes of natural gas (30 to 700 mmscf/d) over medium distances (200 to 1500 miles). Coselle(TM) CNG will economically and reliably serve the segment of the market that cannot effectively be supplied by pipelines or liquefied natural gas (LNG). Marine CNG will open pathways for gas delivery to island communities, smaller industrial consumers and will considerably enhance the value of marginal and stranded gas fields.
