Synthetic-LNG (S-LNG) is the holy grail in the transition from fossil LNG.

But S-LNG is not available yet.

A pilot project in Germany, where MAN Energy Solutions was working with domestic shipping company Wessels Marine to demonstrate its use in the 1,036-teu containership Wes Amelie (built 2011), collapsed after the vessel and production plant were separately sold.

Titan LNG’s Ronald van Selm says his company is working on a first project that should produce S-LNG from 2024, which it will be supplying to the market.
