Singapore Technologies Engineering said that it has been awarded a contract by Quality Liquefied Natural Gas Transport (Q-LNG) to build America’s first offshore LNG articulated tug and barge unit.

Q-LNG contracted ST Engineering’s US shipyard, VT Halter Marine for engineering services to complete the detailed functional design for the development and construction of one LNG bunkering ATB unit.

The barge is designed to carry 4,000 cubic meters of LNG and the LNG ATB unit is designed to meet the requirements of American Bureau of Shipbuilding (ABS) and the International Gas Carrier (IGC) code as an LNG bunkering barge.

The delivery of the LNG ATB unit is expected during the first quarter of 2020.

The LNG bunker barge to be owned by Q-LNG Transport and operated by New Orleans-based marine transportation company Harvey Gulf International Marine, will be chartered to The Hague-based giant Shell on a long-term deal.
