Welcome to Maritime Industry Consultants (MIC) which provides a broad range of consulting services to maritime industry clients. MIC
provides strategic advice and counsel to senior management in marine businesses to develop and implement novel and creative
strategies to resolve complex regulatory issues.
Approach, based on experience in both the public and
private sectors, is to devise strategies with the highest likelihood of success by integrating corporate
objectives with public and regulatory policy objectives to create "win-win" outcomes. This requires the a deep understanding
of the marine and transportation industries;
direct involvement with the fast-developing
area of marine LNG and a knowledge and understanding of regulatory structures and
processes at all levels of government.
involvement in a groundbreaking project to convert two ocean going vessels to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel and
construct the first dedicated LNG marine fueling terminal in the United States. MIC developed and implemented a successful
regulatory strategy which resulted in the first approval of a project of this type by federal agencies.
Following approval, I remained involved in all aspects of the project, which requires the development of entirely new
regulatory structures, as well as development of new technologies and operational processes.
- Continued involvement with major U.S. maritime
company on issues related to LNG regulation and operations.
- Extensive public speaking on issues related to LNG regulation and publication of
articles in marine industry press.
