JAX LNG gets go-ahead for LNG bunker supply operation

22 Aug 2017 06:35 GMT

US Coast Guard approves Jacksonville LNG facility and ship-to-ship bunkering operations.



JAX LNG, LLC has received a letter of acceptance (LOA) from the US Coast Guard (USCG) for the operation of its waterfront LNG facility and the approval to conduct ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations with North America's first LNG bunker barge, Clean Jacksonville, to TOTE Maritime's Marlin-class ships. Ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations are expected to commence in early 2018.

JAX LNG and TOTE Maritime received their first LOA from the USCG to establish a shoreside LNG bunkering facility in the port of Jacksonville back in August 2015. Since then, JAX LNG has delivered LNG to TOTE Maritime's LNG-fuelled container ships. Also, JAX LNG's part owner, Pivotal LNG, has conducted LNG bunkering operations while TOTE Maritime simultaneously loads and offloads cargo at the port.

"The receipt of this second LOA demonstrates our commitment to our customers, the value of inclusive port stakeholder relationships and exhibits confidence in our rigorous operational risk analysis methodology," said Tim Hermann, president of Pivotal LNG.

JAX LNG is a joint venture formed by Pivotal LNG (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Southern Company Gas) and NorthStar Midstream, LLC. Expected to be operational by end of 2017, JAX LNG's waterfront LNG facility in Jacksonville will be outfitted with a marine dock and truck loading capability.

Operated by Pivotal LNG, the facility's initial daily liquefaction capacity will be 120,000 gallons of LNG per day and the facility will have 2 million gallons of storage capacity.
