Mr. Jan Fransen, Executive Director of Green Award Foundation, with Mr. Talal Al-Tamimi, Shipping Manager at RasGas Company Limited, receiving the Green Award certification.

RasGas Company Limited (RasGas) received the Green Award (GA) certification for its commitment to safety, quality and high environmental performance. In 2016, RasGas registered its fleet of 27 time-chartered LNG carriers to be reviewed and successfully certified for Green Awards.

The Green Award Foundation reviews and certifies ships and ship managers who demonstrate achievements beyond the industry regulations in terms of maintenance, operational and safety management, environmental measures, exhausted emissions, anti-fouling and various other requirements related to safety, quality, environment and technical aspects of vessel management.

Mr. Hamad Mubarak Al-Muhannadi RasGas Chief Executive Officer, said: “As a global energy supplier, the Green Award certification represents RasGas’ efforts and commitment towards improving the efficiency and reliability of its shipping operations.”

RasGas together with Qatar Gas has consistently invested in safety and environmental initiatives, such as the Jetty Boil-off Gas Recovery (JBOG) project in Ras Laffan Industrial City, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“We greatly value their dedication and support, which helps in making shipping sustainable and reducing its negative impact. About 20% of the world LNG fleet is currently Green Award certified. This is an extremely important development as we expect that demand for LNG fuel will keep rising” said Jan Fransen, Executive Director of Green Award Foundation.
