#LNG infrastructures & Logistics

The important role of liquefied natural gas in the energy transition for maritime transport is now consolidated. Beside offering definitive solutions regarding the cutting of sulfur emissions, also interesting in view of the rumoured ultra-low sulfur area in the Mediterranean, the LNG also offers a first limited reduction in CO2 emissions. This session deals with the theme from the “land” side, that is, the construction and availability of infrastructures for refueling in our ports both on a large and small scale, and the consequent logistics needed. A focus will be devoted to the synergy between infrastructure dedicated to ships and that serving LNG road transport vehicles in the logistic back port.


  • What happens in the Mediterranean on LNG?
  • LNG availability in Italy in the short to medium term
  • Ongoing projects for LNG supply, storage and distribution infrastructures in Italian ports
  • LNG: the medium-term future of bunkering and a gym for non-carbon-based energy carriers
  • Certification of plants and personnel for LNG operations in the port area
  • Facilities serving the logistic back port
