A new LNG partnership may be in the making following the visit of an Italian port to a port in Egypt to discuss the eco-friendly fuel.

Walid Awad, chairman of Damietta Port Authority (DPA) in Egypt received an Italian delegation from the Italian multipurpose Port of Bari, Italian Chamber of Commerce and multiple Italian logistics companies to discuss the possibility of cooperation to supply ships with LNG and the necessary infrastructure, with the potential for LNG facilities in Damietta Port.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the port community and a number of agencies and companies operating in the Port of Damietta.

Mr Awad explained that supplying ships with LNG is compatible with the efforts exerted by the Ministry of Transport to convert Egyptian ports into green ports to benefit the surrounding environment.

The visit comes after the second forum of Egyptian-Italian dialogue, organised by the Maritime Transport Sector and the Italian Embassy in Cairo.
