As LNG gains traction as alternative fuel, the most environmentally friendly fuel with no large uncertainties related to availability, in the marine, transport and energy sector, the POSEIDON MED II and the newly launched CYnergy project are joining forces on the 29th of September in Limassol, Cyprus, with a Joint Conference setting to explore the possible synergies between the two projects towards the LNG era.
The conference entitled “LNG: the meeting point for marine, transport & energy sector in Cyprus” will be a platform of discussion between experts and key stakeholders from international organisations, marine and energy industry, local authorities and government officials who will set the scene on LNG uptake and offer their insights on how to fuel Cyprus future. The maritime session, opened by the Cypriot Minister of Transport, Communications and Works Marios Dimitriades, will discuss the LNG landscape in marine, sharing experiences from pioneers.

About the Conference Organisers
Poseidon Med II project is a practical roadmap which aims to bring about the wide adoption of LNG as a safe, environmentally efficient and viable alternative fuel for shipping and help the East Mediterranean marine transportation propel towards a low-carbon future. The project, which is co-funded by the European Union, involves three countries Greece, Italy and Cyprus, six European ports (Piraeus, Patras, Limassol, Venice, Heraklion, Igoumenitsa) as well as the Revithoussa LNG terminal. The project brings together top experts from the marine, energy and financial sectors to design an integrated LNG value chain and establish a well-functioning and sustainable LNG market
CYnergy project is a holistic approach towards the establishment of a Natural Gas (NG) system in Cyprus aiming to end the energy isolation of the island through establishing strategic synergies between the sectors of Energy and Transport. Embarking on turning Cyprus into an energy hub in the East Mediterranean, CYnergy targets the development of a sustainable and fully functional NG/LNG market for providing clean and affordable energy to the end user. The project, which is co-financed by the EU, is a collaboration of energy, transport and finance experts as well as public and governmental institutions of Cyprus and Greece.
