TotalEnergies and BW LNG partner with Nautilus Labs to reduce LNG consumption and improve CII
By Nautilus Labs
LNG shipping is not immune to the lack of transparency found in the shipping industry. TotalEnergies, signatory of the Sea Cargo Charter in 2020, identified the need for a solution to report and optimize greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) for its fleet of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) carriers. BW, the owner of some LNG vessels chartered by the energy major, was at the same time focused on monitoring and improving the environmental performance of their vessels and worked closely with TotalEnergies on these shared objectives. Both companies determined that Nautilus Labs was the right company to partner with as an independent third party.
The shipping businesses leveraged Nautilus’s Boil-off Gas Optimization, the Voyage Optimization solution specifically for the LNG segment. Powered by high-fidelity machine learning-based performance models, the solution can determine the optimal operating recommendations to meet temperature and pressure requirements at the terminal while arriving at port with the lowest LNG consumption and meeting the ETA.
But should the vessel proceed on natural boil-off speed, arrive early, and loop in circles – or should it slow down to improve reliquefication and arrive just in time while managing tank pressure through the Gas Combustion Unit (GCU)?
