Crowley has LNG approval

Crowley Maritime Corp. announced Nov. 10 that it has approval from the Department of Energy to transport Canadian liquefied natural gas in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.

Crowley also received approval from the National Energy Board-Canada to commence the shipping of LNG.

The approval is on a two-year import-export basis for up to 2.12 billion cubic feet, or bcf, of natural gas turned LNG via truck in 10,700-gallon ISO containers or bulk marine vessels, according to Crowley.

“This approval is an important step in expanding Crowley’s capability to provide LNG for the Pacific Northwest and Alaska markets, building on the company’s existing service offerings in the region,” Crowley Director of LNG Business Development Matt Sievert said in a release. “It’s exciting for many of our commercial and industrial customers because the availability of LNG has been very limited in the past, and it’s another opportunity for us to prove that we’re a total solutions provider in the energy and logistics industries.”

The company is working to secure 25-year licenses with the Canadian and U.S. governments, according to a company statement.

Crowley operates 22 fuel terminals in Alaska.
