Sumitomo is one of Japan’s largest trading firms. with a 65-year track record in bunker trading. It has interests in pipeline gas trading in the US. in owning and operating LNG carriers and a stake in proposed US LNG-export project Cove Point LNG.
“Our aim. since inception. was to form a coalition that unites key players from across the entire LNG value chain.“ says SEA LNG chairman and TOTE executive vice-president Peter Keller. “The addition of our three new members further strengthens our organization.“
