Energy Observer, a French partnership that launched a total self-sufficient vessel powered by renewable energies and hydrogen as a demonstration laboratory, is now set to present its concept for a multipurpose ro-ro cargo ship fueled by liquid hydrogen that they believe can rapidly advance zero emissions in the shipping industry. Working with leading partners including the CMA CGM Group, Energy Observer says its technology allows zero-emission navigation while offering very high transport capacities and great autonomy.

The group launched their first

Exploration of Liquid Hydrogen Shipping from Portugal to Netherlands


Project will explore shipping liquid hydrogen from Portugal to Rotterdam for storage and distribution (Port of Rotterdam)

Efforts continue to focus on the development of the hydrogen supply chain to support the development of alternative fuels for heavy industry. In the latest development, a group of leading European companies, including Shell New Energies, ENGIE, and Vopak along with shipping company Anthony Veder have agreed to work together to study the feasibility of producing, liquifying, and transporting green hydrogen from Portugal to the Netherlands, where it would then be stored and distributed for sale. Their goal is to complete the first shipment of hydrogen by 2027.

“The consortium envisions hydrogen being produced by electrolysis

Oil Prices Rise after Major Storm Disrupts CPC Pipeline


The energy sector is set for a higher start supported by strength in the underlying commodities while US markets are expected to open lower on weakness in the major equity futures.

The energy sector is set for a higher start supported by strength in the underlying commodities while US markets are expected to open lower on weakness in the major equity futures. U.S. stock index futures edged lower giving back some of the gains from yesterday’s mega cap fueled rally on Wall Street, as investors assessed the outlook for U.S. interest rates following calls from Federal Reserve policymakers suggesting a more hawkish Fed.

WTI and Brent crude oil futures are higher in early trading supported by disruption of

Maritime software provider NAPA has joined forces with ship classification society ClassNK and shipowner Marubeni to evaluate 

The Fleet Intelligence platform from NAPA will be used to ‘retrospectively’ study the effect of energy efficiency existing ship index (EEXI) through actual vessel performance across Marubeni’s fleet, as well as compare it against similar fleets.

ClassNK’s expertise will be used in verification, analysis and accuracy. It will help NAPA to forecast Marubeni vessels’ future performance, ensuring they can compete in the market with reduced propulsion power after new EEXI and carbon intensity indicators (CII) requirements become effective in 2023.

Through NAPA’s exclusive performance model, the Cloud-based Fleet Intelligence platform integrates NAPA’s expertise in naval architecture with many years of data on actual

Shell, BP, ExxonMobil leaving Russia after decades


Oil majors must assess possible broader damage to their

corporate reputations and relationships if they stay


MARCH 4, 2022

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, British energy giant BP announced on February 27 that it will sell its nearly 20% ownership in Russian state-owned energy giant Rosneft. BP’s rival Shell is also pulling out of all of its operations in Russia, as are US energy giant ExxonMobil and Norway’s state-controlled company, Equinor.

These breakups will not be cheap. BP’s stake in Rosneft is worth US$14 billion. In various projects, Shell has about $3 billion in assets in Russia. ExxonMobil has over 1,000 employees and more than $4 billion in assets there. Pulling out will inflict significant financial hits on all of these companies.
