The Jovellanos Centre of the Spanish Maritime Safety Agency and Enagás have signed an agreement for the creation of the International LNG School, which will offer a wide range of training courses for professionals in the industry.
The General Director of the Spanish Merchant Navy and chairman of the Marine Safety Agency Rafael Rodríguez Valero, and the CEO of Enagás Marcelino Oreja signed the agreement in the Jovellanos Integral Maritime Safety Centre in Gijón, in whose installations the courses of the future international school outlined in the agreement will be held. The facilities of Enagas regasification plant, located in El Musel, will be the other setting where training will be given.
This agreement, the result of a collaboration between the Maritime Safety Agency and Enagás within the CORE LNGas hive project, which is co-financed by the European Union, whose main objective is to jointly structure a training program to cover all aspects of LNG.

LNG is one of the most environmentally friendly fuels, which is why its use is being promoted for marine transport and in ports throughout Spain and Europe.
