São Sebastião to offer new container concession
The Brazilian port of São Sebastião is to put out to tender a new terminal requiring investment of $317m as part of a second tranche of concessions being put together by the central government.
The concession consists of an area of 250,000 square metres, accessed by two berths, with alongside draft of 18-19 metres. The expectation is that around nine million tons of traffic will be handled there annually, consisting of either general cargo or containers.
Up for grabs is a 25-year concession. The expansion plan for the port, which currently occupies an area of 100,000 square metres, initially envisions developing land to form 300,000 square metres of operating area, later increasing this to 400,000 square metres and, ultimately, to 800,000 square metres. However, this will be a phased development of the port, depending on the needs of the operators and on whether new traffic can be attracted.

India looking to import LNG from Canada
India is looking to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Canada to meet its requirements. Oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan met the Canadian minister for natural resources Greg Rickford at the second India-Canada Ministerial Energy Dialogue in Calgary to discuss enhancing energy cooperation between the two countries.
The areas of cooperation discussed at the meeting included oil, natural gas, clean energy, power transmission and skill development, an official statement said today. “Canada could potentially supply a significant amount of the 44 billion cubic metres of natural gas that India is forecast to import annually by 2025,” the statement said. State-owned Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) has already taken a 10% stake in the Pacific NorthWest LNG, while real estate firm Hiranandani Group has announced plans to develop a 4.5 million tonnes per annum LNG export terminal in Melford, Nova Scotia at an estimated cost of $3.3 billion by 2020.
“India and Canada share common values and ideals and believe in long-term sustained partnerships. Our energy cooperation is steadily growing but the potential is much higher—let’s convert the potential into reality,” Pradhan said in the statement. Speaking on the occasion, Rickford said “Canada’s growing energy relationship with India is helping create jobs and long-term prosperity for both of our countries. We stand ready to expand our strategic partnership through greater cooperation based on our complementarity of energy interests.”
European Parliament Adopts Amended Directive on Seafarers
The European Parliament’s Plenary session has adopted the agreement on the European Commission’s proposal for a Directive on seafarers reached in trialogue with the Council of the EU and the social partners last May,
Following this adoption, seafarers will soon be included in directives on information and consultation of employees in the EU, on the establishment of European Works’ Councils for the purposes of informing and consulting employees, on collective redundancies, and on the safeguarding of employees’ rights in the event of a transfer of undertakings.
In October last year, the Social Partners for Maritime Transport, the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) and the European Community Shipowners’ Associations (ECSA), managed to reach an agreement that aimed at amending the Commission’s original proposal on several points.
The joint ECSA/ETF agreement was presented both to the European Parliament and the Council of the EU and the agreement was fully taken onboard in the subsequent positions adopted by both EU Institutions.
Study: Seas Could Rise 6 Meters Despite UN Global Warming Cap
Sea levels could rise by 6 meters (20 feet) in the long rung even if a United Nations goal of limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times is reached, according to researchers at Past Global Changes project.
Three times in the recent geological past sea levels were at least 6 meters higher than current levels when global average temperatures were similar to today, according to the study published in the journal Science.
Nations have agreed to try to limit global average temperature to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels, while warming is on course to reach 4°C degrees by the end of this century if emissions continue on the current trajectory, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report 2013.
CaroTrans Restarts Rotterdam - Los Angeles Weekly Service
CaroTrans, a global non-vessel operating common carrier and ocean freight consolidator, has resumed its direct, 26-day, all-water Rotterdam to Los Angeles import service.
CaroTrans says that over the last few months the lingering US West Coast port congestion has eased, which enabled the resumption of this weekly import service.
The resumed service complements CaroTrans network of direct import services from Rotterdam including service to: Chicago, Charleston, Miami, New York and Houston.
CaroTrans partners with Cleve & Zonen in the Netherlands and Belgium for these services.
“The resumption of this service represents stable conditions at US West Coast Ports which allows for the reinstatement of the Los Angeles gateway. Shippers require direct, reliable service options to ensure supply chain integrity and effective management of associated transportation costs,” said Greg Howard, CEO of CaroTrans.
Saint Lawrence Seaway receives Green Marine certification
The Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation recently received Green Marine certification for its environmental performance
The U.S. Department of Transportation agency received a score of 4.1 for spill prevention, greenhouse gases and community impact. It earned a perfect 5 for its environmental leadership.
Green Marine, a voluntary organization, provides a certification program that testifies to environmental stewardship in the marine industry based in North America. Participants include terminals, shipyards, ports and shipowners throughout the U.S. and Canada. All participants of the Green Marine program are urged to decrease their environmental footprints by receiving certifications and achieving nine separate areas of concrete actions.
The 2015 Green Marine Performance Report was based on information gathered from 93 individual participants. The number of participants sets a record for the last seven years. More than half of the attendees stated that they had a notable increase in a minimum of one of the four categories included in the report. This proves that sustainability is spreading through marine shipping industries.

MAST: Restructuring of port facilities in Libya
The restructuring of port facilities in Libya will only take place when a unity government is in place says British maritime security company MAST.
Gerry Northwood OBE, COO of leading maritime security firm MAST, said:
“ UN sponsored Unity Government negotiations appear to have stalled for now, with the Tripoli Government with drawing from the talks. However, the UN process will continue and it is likely that a series of ad hoc discussions will take place between the various government and tribal factions.
Northwood added: “ These talks will be partly driven by the common interest in fighting ISIL, but achieving the level of agreement required to form a Unity Government is unlikely in the near term. .”
Northwood said that it has been reported that the National Oil Company (NOC) has lifted the force majeure declared in December 2014 at Ras Lanuf Oil Terminal on the Gulf of Sidre. Once operational the facility could increase Libya’s oil exports by up to 300,000 bpd.
DP World launches Kochi-Far East service from Vallarpadam
DP World is trying to give a fresh boost to Vallarpadam terminal with a new weekly direct service linking the Far East to Kochi.
The move assumes significance in the context of Kerala Government’s decision to develop Vizhinjam as a transhipment terminal.
The Far East-based Galex service, operated by a consortium of four operators, will have its maiden call at ICTT (International Container Transhipment Terminal) on July 13. Galex — a consortium of Emirates Shipping Line, KMTC, RCL and Haijin — will be operating 7,000 teu (twenty-foot equivalent units) vessels, which is expected to provide adequate capacity to the trade in this region.
Besides Kochi, the vessel will call on the ports of Pusan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Chiwan, Singapore, Port Klang, Nhava Sheva, Mundra and Jebel Ali.
Shipping circles expects the new service, which starts from Korea, to provide competitive transit time and comprehensive networks.
With this service, Vallarpadam seems to be coming back into a focussed approach on transhipment. The terminal, which commenced operations four years ago, has been struggling to get transhipment cargo. Galex becomes the first Far East carrier service to call at Kochi, creating feeder connectivity to the west coast, the sources said.
Port Saint John gets $68M from Ottawa to upgrade container terminals
he federal government has committed up to $68.3 million to modernize Port Saint John s container terminals, but the provincial government is still considering a request for funding for the proposed $205-million overhaul.
"This project is a very large ticket item and our next step is to take the appropriate time to conduct our due diligence and review it," Regional Development Corporation Minister Victor Boudreau said in an emailed statement to CBC News.
The proposal would see the Rodney and Navy Island terminals on the city s west side consolidated and upgraded to be able to accommodate larger vessels, as well as an increase in container traffic.
Container traffic at Port Saint John increased by 17 per cent last year and officials expect it to increase again this year.
Saint John Conservative MP Rodney Weston announced the federal contribution to the infrastructure project on Wednesday morning, on behalf of federal Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel.
"This project has been identified by the federal government as a project of national significance, as a project that has broad public benefits and that contributes to long term economic growth and prosperity," Weston told a large, enthusiastic audience at the Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal.
