Houston-based small-scale LNG firm Stabilis Solutions continues to expand its liquefied natural gas bunkering business and has signed a new deal with a port in Texas.
The firm signed a memorandum of understanding with Port Isabel Logistical Offshore Terminal (PILOT) to facilitate the use of LNG as a marine fuel at the port in Texas.
This would be the third LNG marine bunkering location that Stabilis supports on the Gulf Coast, it said in a statement on Thursday.
Under the new memorandum, Stabilis and PILOT will work together to provide turnkey LNG fueling solutions to marine vessels calling on the port.
This includes identifying suitable dock space for shore-to-ship fueling operations, obtaining the necessary permits and approvals, identifying and educating potential customers, and executing LNG fueling events, Stabilis said.
Also, Stabilis said it would deploy its existing fleet of mobile cryogenic assets, including LNG transportation and distribution equipment, and provide LNG from its liquefaction facility George West, Texas to support fueling operations.
The company expects LNG bunkering services to be available at PILOT in early 2022.
