Cryopeak, Sumitomo in North America LNG bunkering pact

Canadian LNG distributor Cryopeak has joined forces with Japan’s Sumitomo Corp to develop an LNG bunkering supply chain in North America’s Pacific Northwest ports.

Under the deal, Sumitomo will offer Cryopeak’s end-to-end LNG fueling solutions to existing and potential customers in Canadian ports. These include Vancouver, Fraser River, Roberts Bank and Prince Rupert.

Cryopeak’s CEO Calum McClure said the firm looks froward to collaborate with Sumitomo to further LNG bunkering activity in North America.

The cooperation is paving the way towards the development of LNG as a cleaner marine fuel, especially in Vancouver, one of the most eco-friendly ports in the world, said Shu Nakamura, department general manager of Sumitomo.

To remind, Cryopeak is developing a 4,000-cbm ATB LNG bunkering barge with plans to launch it in 2023.

The ATB will provide ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore LNG transfers to customers in the North American Pacific Northwest.

Furthermore, Cryopeak has a partnership with Island Tug & Barge, to develop the LNG bunkering ATB and jointly provide LNG bunkering solutions to the shipping industry.
