WHO we are

Connect LNG was born from the strong desire to challenge the status quo in established and traditional industry sectors which are deep-rooted in the Norwegian culture; namely Maritime, Shipping and Energy.

Norway is a maritime nation and has been at the forefront of the shipping industry for over 150 years. Thanks also to the national oil and gas adventure which started in the 1970’s, Norway is home to the many companies leading the technology revolution in the offshore sector.

We are dedicated to realising and
de-risking your marine infrastructure project

Connect LNG was born from first-hand experience with the challenges and inefficiencies of traditional LNG offloading methods from ship to shore. Our core offerings remove the need for fixed and permanent infrastructure such as quays, jetties, trestle structures and loading platforms.
