Standardized packages and scalable designs


AG&P brings together its expertise in LNG delivery solutions, standardized engineering designs and modular construction to deliver cost-effective LNG bunker vessels with the flexibility to meet the requirements of new and existing markets, where demand for LNG continues to grow.

Together with Gas Entec and Kanfer Shipping, AG&P is developing solutions for large and small-scale bunker vessels, utilizing a range of standardized LNG storage tanks, fitments, bridge equipment and components. By incorporating identical equipment packages onto a scalable platform, we deliver greater project efficiencies, while providing flexible and adaptable storage and transfer solutions to meet specific project requirements.

Our standardized approach to bunker vessel design means our customers can:

  • Reduce costs as customized engineering is minimized
  • Accelerate delivery with modular construction

Addressing the unmet needs of utilities and industrial customers


AG&P is overcoming the limitations of natural gas pipelines by establishing LNG truck-loading facilities at our import terminals, supported by a truck-based delivery network, ensuring LNG delivery to distant customers not connected to a gas pipeline. This makes it easy and affordable for these underserved customers to switch fuel sources.

AG&P’s onshore LNG trucking network includes mother and daughter stations where LNG is converted to compressed natural gas (CNG) for distribution via truck to retail facilities based at existing fueling stations and directly to industrial, commercial and automotive customers. This infrastructure is part of our City Gas Distribution networks in India as well as Indonesia, where we jointly operate a fleet of LNG trucks serving the power and industrial sectors.

Our LNG-by-truck provides a complete LNG virtual pipeline solution, including LNG procurement, LNG transportation and onsite LNG processing equipment.

Facilitating small-scale LNG distribution


AG&P is making LNG as an alternate fuel viable in new markets with flexible operational solutions. Our efforts include installing maritime break-bulk facilities at our import terminals, where large LNG shipments are broken down into smaller volumes to facilitate distribution of LNG onshore via LNG trucks, ISO containers or directly for use as fuel for ships.

Together with Gas Entec and Kanfer Shipping, we have the in-house expertise to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for break-bulk facilities and support offshore operations, including ship-to-ship transfer and bunkering. We also manage the logistics across the value chain, including supply, import, break-bulk and trucking or shipping of smaller volumes of LNG directly to the end-user.

AG&P has acquired a strategic interest in Kanfer Shipping, an extremely innovative and exciting company leading the field of revolutionizing break-bulk shipping, the so-called virtual pipeline that until now was slowed because of the high costs of implementation.  Today, AG&P is pleased to introduce Kanfer Shipping.

Overview of Kanfer Shipping:
