Pivotal LNG, part of Southern Company Gas, has executed another multiyear contract to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Crowley Maritime.
Under the new agreement, Pivotal LNG will increase the volumes delivered to Carib Energy, Crowley’s unit, that is expanding its use of the chilled fuel in its Puerto Rico plants.
The two companies signed the initial LNG supply deal in 2014.
As with the existing LNG contracts with Crowley, Pivotal LNG will load the chilled fuel onto Crowley’s international shipping organization (ISO) containers at one of its facilities in the southeast. These ISO containers are transported via truck to Crowley-owned vessels in Jacksonville, Florida, that then deliver the LNG to customers in Puerto Rico.
Pivotal LNG expects to source these volumes from the JAX LNG plant in Jacksonville that is being jointly developed with its partner, Northstar Midstream. This plant is expected to be operational before the end of the year.
Pivotal LNG and Southern Company Gas operate a network of LNG production facilities with the capacity to produce over 554,000 gallons per day and the ability to store more than 96 million gallons.
