Connect LNG changes name to ECONNECT Energy to reflect a broader focus on clean energy transfer solutions.

7th April 2021, Oslo, Norway — Connect LNG changes name to ECONNECT Energy to reflect a broader focus on clean energy transfer solutions. The new focus aims to make clean energy accessible globally to realise solutions for not just LNG, but also renewable fuels and the carbon capture value chain.

Connect LNG was founded in 2012 based on the belief that clean energy should be accessible and affordable. Challenging industry-standard transfer solutions, Connect LNG pioneered the world’s first jettyless transfer of LNG, addressing the need for a cost-effective and environmentally-sound solution in the LNG value chain. With passion and optimism for a carbon neutral future, the company is advancing into renewable energy and carbon sequestration markets.

ECONNECT Energy will leverage its experience in the LNG energy market to enable a seamless transition into new, carbon-free energy solutions. The patented floating jettyless system, the IQuay (previously named the UTS), is flexible to energy demand, and can be used for carbon capture and storage (CCS) and renewable fuels such as ammonia, bio LNG and hydrogen.

With a new focus on the exciting potential of renewable energies comes a new name to align with the company’s values and ambitions. The new name, ECONNECT Energy, describes an approach to operating with deliberate care for climate-positive energy solutions.

“A passion for change and a desire to challenge ‘common practice’ are in the company’s DNA. When we designed our transfer solution we always wanted to apply it to more than just LNG,”

says CEO Morten Christophersen.

“With our current focus and success in the LNG market coupled with experience with CCS and renewables, we are well-positioned to broaden our scope to include new, carbon free energy solutions. For us, this is a natural progression on our journey. We will always seek to challenge the status quo and look beyond.”

A shift from oil to gas is necessary for a greener future. Gas is increasingly attractive for its low carbon emissions, low sulfur content, high energy density and availability. While many carbon-based fuels have faced declining demands in recent years, liquified natural gas (LNG) is globally one of the fastest growing fuels today.

ECONNECT Energy in partnership with Equinor conducted a physical wave operation to demonstrate the safe connection in waves, between the IQuay jettyless transfer system, La Santa Maria, to an Equinor-chartered gas carrier. The operation demonstrated the ability of the IQuay to withstand challenging weather without compromising safe and effective operations. The full-scale operation measured both the performance of the vacuum attachment system and the IQuay motion in waves, as well as a towing operation in significant swell.

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Paris Agreement on climate change provide a pathway for a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable future for people and the planet. Answering the call of the SDGs has never been more urgent. Luckily, recent trends have de-mystified both understanding and achieving the SDGs for the private sector.
