K LINE Group and Uyeno Group of Companies have joined SEA\LNG to stimulate collaboration in APAC's LNG hub.

The two companies bring valuable insight from the thriving LNG value chain in Japan and elsewhere and SEA\LNG sees the country as growing in importance as a location for LNG-fuelled shipping and bunkering.

“Our members in Japan are doing important work, both in the region and across the world, which contributes significantly to helping us achieve our mission,” said Peter Keller, SEA\LNG chairman and executive vice president, Tote.

Important hub

The companies now stand alongside a host of Japanese organisations which have joined SEA\LNG and committed to accelerating LNG adoption globally including: Yokohama-Kawasaki International Port Corporation (YKIP), Marubeni, Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsui & Co., NYK Line, Toyota Tsusho Corporation, and Sumitomo Corporation.

The K LINE Group is an integrated logistics company which owns and operates various fleets tailored to worldwide marine transportation needs.

In April 2017, the Group launched a new business division devoted to the transportation of LNG and LPG, to broaden its involvement in both the upstream and downstream business of the global energy value chain.

Uyeno Group is a group of organisations which provides specialised logistics solutions for the storage and transportation of petroleum and petro-chemical products.

Established in 1869 in Yokohama, the organisation expanded into South East Asia early in its lifespan and has a wealth of experience in bunker barge and shuttle tanker operation.
