CEO Arthur Regan Speaks at Marine Money Conference in NYC

CEO Arthur Regan contributed to a panel entitled The Growing Role of Infrastructure Funds in Maritime Industries at the Marine Money Conference at the Pierre Hotel in NYC. “The LNG industry enables capital with a purpose. Energy transition. Management of decarbonization. Climate change. A lot of capital is focusing on [these topics], and the maritime industry can now be part of it. It’s found its time. LNG is an essential backbone of the world’s population today.”
