Singapore will host the Gastech Exhibition from 27–30 October 2015.

Gastech will be partnering with classification society, Lloyd’s Register, and other LNG industry specialists at the Centres of Technical Excellence (CoTEs) in Singapore from 27–30 October 2015.

The CoTEs is a free-to-attend technical program that is open to all Gastech Exhibition visitors, and features over 80 cutting-edge seminars across 11 topics in natural gas and LNG.

Presentations passed through a rigorous process that attracted a record number of technical submissions earlier this year.

Evolution and innovation are key growth factors in LNG and gas carrier shipbuilding

Gastech is partnering with Lloyd’s Register to present the LNG and gas carrier shipbuilding stream, which will start by outlining the evolution of LNG carrier designs with gas turbine propulsion.

GTT, Samsung Heavy Industries, and various other ship technology leaders such as Wartsila and Babcock will also share their insights.

Is LNG the future bunker fuel?

Technological advancement also continues to propel LNG as the bunker fuel of the future.

Just this year, Nor Lines’ Kvitbjørn made history by becoming the world’s first vessel to operate between Asia and Europe solely on LNG.

Rolls-Royce, the technology giant providing the ship’s pure gas engine, is partnering with Lloyd’s Register to present the latest developments in “LNG as Marine Fuel” technology at the CoTEs seminars.

This year’s CoTEs program will also address gas processing, lNG bunkering, natural gas vehicles, floating LNG, offshore technology, LNG facilities and infrastructure, information and communication technology in gas, small–mid scale LNG and pipeline infrastructure.

The CoTEs seminars have been a regular draw at the Gastech Exhibition since 2011, attracting over 3,000 technical gas professionals.

Pre-event registration is free and is currently open; already hundreds of industry professionals have registered to attend what is set to be this year’s largest gathering for the gas industry and its related sectors.

Gastech Conference and Exhibition is hosted by BG Group. The event is also supported by the Energy Market Authority Singapore, International Enterprise Singapore and the Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau, and will be held in association with the Singapore International Energy Week.
