    Crowley, Pivotal reach new multi-year LNG supply contract

    Crowley Fuels has signed another multi-year supply contract with Pivotal LNG to support a major pharmaceutical company’s energy needs in Puerto Rico. The contract, executed through Crowley subsidiary Carib Energy (USA) LLC, calls for Crowley to transport LNG from Pivotal facilities on the mainland to the island manufacturer, the company said in its press release.

    With Crowley’s supply chain solution, LNG is loaded into Crowley’s 10,000-gallon international shipping organization (ISO) containers at one of Pivotal’s LNG supply sources in the southeastern U.S. These ISO containers are then transported via truck and loaded onto Crowley vessels in Jacksonville, Fla. Crowley then provides ocean transportation and delivers the LNG to various customers in Puerto Rico.

    Once operational, Pivotal expects to source LNG volumes from the JAX LNG plant that is being jointly developed with Pivotal’s partner, Northstar Midstream, in Jacksonville. JAX LNG is a new, state-of-the-art liquefied natural gas facility and will be North America’s first coastal LNG facility with marine and truck loading capabilities. The JAX LNG facility is expected to go into operation in 2018.

    Crowley’s Carib Energy was the first company to receive a small scale, 25-year, LNG export license from the U.S. Department of Energy for LNG transportation from the U.S. into Free Trade Agreement (FTA) countries.

    Shortly thereafter, a Crowley LNG services group was formed to begin offering supply, transportation and distribution of LNG services via ISO containers and the company was additionally granted the first small-scale license for supply, transportation and distribution of LNG into Non-Free Trade Agreement (NTFA) countries in the Caribbean, Central and South America.

    To date, Crowley has successfully transported more 6.1 million gallons of LNG as well as provided engineering and other services.

    Crowley Fuels is a leader in the fuel industry, providing transportation, distribution and sales of petroleum products to more than 280 communities across Alaska, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) sales, distribution and engineering services primarily in Alaska, the Caribbean and Central America.
