SEA\LNG has announced two new board appointments, with Paul Taylor from Société Générale and Captain M. Segar from The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA Singapore) confirmed as directors.

SEA\LNG is an industry coalition that aims to increase the adoption of liquefied natural gas a marine fuel.

Tahir Faruqui and Xavier Pfeuty also join the SEA\LNG Board as new directors representing Shell and Total Marine Fuels respectively following elections in December.

Chairman Peter Keller said 2018 was an exciting year for the LNG industry and the coalition.

“As our membership grew to 36 we welcomed Société Générale as our first financial institution and additional ports, including MPA Singapore,” Mr Keller said.

“I am delighted to welcome Paul and Capt Segar as representatives from these organisations, as well as Xavier and Tahir to the SEA\LNG Board for 2019.”


Mr Keller thanked outgoing board members Yvonne van der Laan (Port of Rotterdam), Michael Chia (Keppel Offshore & Marine) and Lauran Wetemans (Shell) for their roles as founding board members of SEA\LNG.

“We have benefitted significantly from their leadership, dedication and guidance, and wish them all the best for the future,” Mr Keller said.

“I would also like to appreciate the ongoing commitment of our other board members, all of whom possess a broad range of highly relevant skills and experience and a singular desire to drive forward our vision of a competitive global LNG value chain for cleaner maritime shipping towards 2020 and beyond.”
