maritime administrations that was formed
to foster global LNG bunkering standards.
"Having a seat at the table where these policies are being crafted shows Jacksonville
is a major player on the global stage," said
Christopher Quinn, vice president of government affairs for the Jacksonville chamber. North Florida also is at the table with
SEA\LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition, created to accelerate the adoption of
LNG as a marine fuel. This group brings
together shipping companies, classification
societies, ports, LNG suppliers, LNG downstream companies, infrastructure providers
and others.
Stubbs said that JAXPORT's leadership
in the industry has brought the eyes of the
world to the port: "LNG brings jobs, economic growth, environmental benefits and
clearly port growth through ship fuel and
export cargo."

Montreal's Bunkering
JAXPORT will soon support two Crowley
LNG-powered Commitment Class
combination container/roll-on roll-off
"ConRo" ships. The Jones Act vessels,
El Coqui and Taino, currently under
construction, are slated to be in service in
the final quarter of 2017 and the first half
of 2018, respectively. Here, the A-frame
of the El Coqui engine is being placed at
the shipyard.

Proximity to supply and to markets
brings LNG opportunities, but customer

service, retention and development drives
port involvement. When a maritime carrier
chooses LNG power, it must source the
fuel somewhere.
Port of Montreal Captain and Marine
Operations Director Jean-François Belzile
said, "The port is receptive to its clients'
needs and adapts accordingly. We believe
in an agile business model adapting
to innovation."
When shipping company Groupe
Desgagnés chose to acquire LNG-fueled
ships, the Port of Montreal collaborated
on an LNG supply solution for marine fuel
available to all customers. The local ferry
entity also has LNG-powered vessels.
Belzile said the supply solution required
creation of specific operational and emergency procedures for bunkering operations to allow delivery via tank truck to
moored ship.
In a media release announcing the
marine fueling solution, the port and Gaz
Métro encouraged ship owners to follow
the lead taken by Groupe Desgagnés and

LNG's Unique Cold Chain
LNG is liquefied natural gas, essentially natural gas that has been converted to liquid by cooling it to minus
162 degrees Celsius. The liquefaction
process decreases the volume by a
factor of about 600, allowing LNG to
be stored and transported efficiently
and safely.
It is shipped as cargo over water in
cryogenic sea vessels - LNG carriers.
In smaller quantities it is shipped in
cryogenic ISO-tank containers, or
cryogenic rail tankers and trucks.
Once delivered to destination and
warmed to its original gaseous state,
LNG can be used across the residential, commercial and industrial sectors
for heating and cooling, generating
electricity, and manufacturing, among
other applications.
