move toward the efficient, cost-effective
and clean LNG option. Belzile said,
"Now that ship operators have an option,
we are expecting a growing demand which
is likely to take place with new ships
being built."

Collaboration to Promote
LNG Use
Margaret Kaigh Doyle is senior manager of marine business development for
Eagle LNG Partners, LLC. She outlined
an innovative new collaboration between
ExxonMobil, Crowley and Eagle LNG to
promote LNG as a marine fuel, leveraging

Maritime Fuel of
the Future
It is beginning to be used as a fuel in
LNG-powered (or dual fuel) vessels
and high-horsepower trucks, locomotives and mining or drilling engines.
LNG-fueled container ships, ferries,
cruise ships and other vessels are being
delivered worldwide.
Rapid adoption of LNG by maritime
carriers is being driven by new limits
on vessel sulfur emissions. Natural gas
is an attractive alternative to expensive low-sulfur fuels, or chemical
"scrubbing."
LNG as a fuel emits lower volumes
of particulates, sulfur and nitrogen
oxides, and CO2. In addition to helping vessels meet more stringent emission standards, LNG-powered engines
require less maintenance, run more
quietly, and are less expensive to operate overall.

specialized knowledge and expertise for
the benefit of vessel operators bunkering
in North America. It also aims to provide
additional opportunities for vessel operators looking to adopt LNG as a marine fuel.
The effort was timed to help address
the International Maritime Organization's
2020 emission control mandate, and to
prepare for MARPOL Annex VI compliance. The initial focus will be on the North
American LNG supply chain for marine fuel
in Florida, according to Doyle.
The main objective is to develop transport and bunkering infrastructure. Doyle
said, "The three companies will work
together to provide LNG to marine and
land-based customers, establishing storage
and technical support to deliver natural
gas bunkers to North America-based vessel
operators. Energy giant ExxonMobil will
sell LNG bunker fuel to vessel operators
and will provide additional technical support." She added, "Houston-based Eagle
LNG will supply the LNG and plans to
design, build and operate small-scale production and storage and to co-ordinate
truck deliveries overland. A subsidiary of
Ferus Natural Gas Fuels, Eagle is building LNG infrastructure across the U.S.
Jacksonville-based ship owner Crowley will
provide bunker logistics and will ensure safe
and reliable operations."
Eagle LNG's liquefaction, storage and
export facility in Jacksonville plans to serve
both domestic and international markets.
The company is seeing increased demand
for LNG to serve small-scale export
markets, while domestic demand for LNG,
to displace diesel and other petroleum
fuels, continues to develop, according
to Doyle.

She said that port authorities are a key
partner in developing necessary LNG
bunkering infrastructure. "One of the key
challenges in creating small-scale LNG
infrastructure is the need for harmonized
investments and risk allocation throughout
the value chain. Also, any owner/operator
considering LNG or dual fuel engines for
an upcoming newbuild does not want his
fuel purchasing process to dramatically
change," said Doyle. She added, "Based
on our overwhelmingly positive experience
in working with JAXPORT, Eagle LNG
is very bullish on the importance of the
ports' role providing the infrastructure
solutions that will be needed by the shipping industry post 2020."

LNG Leverages Coos
Bay Assets
The Oregon International Port of Coos
Bay, once the largest exporter of timber
in the world, is anticipating a remarkable
renaissance. CEO John Burns foresees
exceptional LNG export cargo potential -
as many as 7.8 million tons per year. That
volume will shatter current annual statistics
at 1.8 million tons of mixed cargo.
Coos Bay is one of many ports that have
worked over the long term with LNG industry players initially planning to import. As
"fracking" escalated supply, many planned
or active terminals were re-jigged as
export terminals.
Burns said, "Jordan Cove will be a game
changer for the Oregon International Port
of Coos Bay. Having more diversity in the
cargo mix, which is still predominantly in
the timber arena, is important."
"As the U.S. and Canada shift to become
net producers, I feel confident that current
