Crowley Maritime’s unit, Carib Energy has secured an approval from the U.S. Department of Energy to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) over a period of 20 years.

Carib Energy aims to export about 1.3 Bcf/year (0.004 Bcf/day) of LNG in ISO containers transported on oceangoing carriers to nations in Central America, South America, or the Caribbean that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with the U.S.

The chilled fuel will be sourced from any of five existing natural gas liquefaction facilities, which are owned and operated by Pivotal LNG, or by one of Pivotal’s affiliates, according to Carib Energy. Pivotal’s liquefaction facilities are located in Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia.

Once loaded at the facilities, LNG will transported within the U.S. over highways using ISO containers.

Carib Energy says it plans to ship the fuel from the ports of Jacksonville and Port Everglades located in Florida, Gulfport in Mississippi, and any port in the southeastern U.S. capable of accommodating LNG exports by ISO containers.
