100th LNG BUNKERING IN US FOR EAGLE LNG AND CROWLEY

Tuesday, August 11, 2020 

Eagle LNG recently celebrated the 100th bunkering of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Talleyrand LNG Bunker Station, located at Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport), with Crowley Maritime (Crowley).

Sean Lalani, president of Eagle LNG, said: “Since March, our operations staff have continued working with Crowley’s ship management teams to maintain safe bunkering of their ships, MV Taíno and MV El Coquí, while adhering to public health guidelines. This is a testament to the operating procedures we developed together in the spirit of partnership to keep cargo moving.”

Eagle LNG Talleyrand, which provides on-site storage for over 500,000 gallons of LNG, has successfully delivered over 30 million gallons or almost 50,000 metric tons over the last 100 bunkering activities to Crowley's Commitment Class, combination container/roll-on roll-off (ConRo) ships, which provide ocean transportation of dry, refrigerated and vehicle cargoes under the Jones Act.

“This milestone represents the result of collaboration, hard work and dedication to safety and reliability of our mariners, the men and women of Crowley, Eagle LNG, VT Halter Marine, US Coast Guard, Jaxport and the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department,” said Crowley VP Cole Cosgrove. “We committed ourselves to ensuring these ships and our communities can leverage the benefits of cleaner energy and maximize service to our customers and partners. The achievement today signifies the ongoing commitment to long-term, environmentally sustainable ocean shipping between the US mainland and Puerto Rico.”
