    Re: Great lake ship SS-Badger on natural gas

    This is Fabulous testiment to how CNG could replace DIRTY COAL in many applications!!! If it can be done on the Great Lakes for a ship, surely it can be done on land!##&&!!

    Same applies to Coal-Fired power plants that STILL KEEP GOING IN !! Kansas, for instance, is letting Sunflower Power proceed with OLD PRE-2011 pollution rules for new coal-fired electric power plant that even won't be built for 2 or 3 years!! I'm no over zealot tree-hugger, but this is plain-and-simple backwards thinking to keep allowing these old dirty coal pollution beasts to keep proliferating!

    Only side benefit of the Kansas coal plant debacle is that ANGA (American National Gas Assn) is airing TV ads to educate the public of great benefits of natural gas . . . including CNG vehicles like trash trucks, fleet vehicles, etc.

      This is wonderful, and could be the example for the marine industry to move towards CNG especially on land locked lakes.

        Jacksonville FL (LNG) terminal to fuel cargo ships

        Clean Energy Fuels will build a liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal to fuel cargo ships to serve the Dames Point Marine Terminal Intermodal Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) at 9620 Dave Rawls Blvd Jacksonville, FL. It will be located on a waterfront site at 1632 Zoo Parkway and will be completed in late 2015. Touting it as the first such plant on the East Coast, Clean Energy Fuels will be joined by a consortium known as Eagle LNG Partners - comprised of Clean Energy Fuels and GE Ventures, GE Energy Financial Services, and Ferus Natural Gas.

        Spokesman Patric Rayburn said that while there are other LNG terminals, those are for importing and exporting. The Jacksonville plant will be the first plant in the country that will take gas from the natural gas pipeline network, cool it to minus 260 degrees Fahrenheit to produce liquefied natural gas and fuel shipshttp://jaxcreblog.com/2013/10/30/cle...rminal-in-jax/

        A planned public access CNG station is also planned for the area at 4100 Heckscher Dr Jacksonville, FL by Trillium CNG.

                LNG shipping in Florida and Washington State to use LNG barge for fueling initially.

                The Marlin Class LNG powered container ship, Isla Bella, was launched 18 April 2015 in San Diego at the General Dynamics shipyard. It will head for Jacksonville FL later this year to begin sailing between Northeast Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico. A second ship, which will launch in the third quarter of 2015, won't be used until early 2016.

                From the article, "The ships will be operated by Sea Star Line LLC, which is under the TOTE umbrella. TOTE and Sea Star aren't the only ones tapping into the LNG market. Crowley started construction on LNG ships of its own last year, through VT Halter Marine."

                http://www.bizjournals.com/jacksonvi...p-to-call.html

                Update on the LNG fueling in Florida for the ships:

                http://www.ngvglobal.com/blog/jackso...inerships-0106

                Eagle LNG Partners, is planning a holding tank in Jacksonville that can contain 900,000 gallons of LNG on 197 acres along Zoo Parkway, a road known for most of its length as Heckscher Drive. The gas will be routed to the terminal from an existing pipeline. The terminal west of the Broward River near Drummond Creek is largely designed to export LNG to relatively small overseas markets such as Caribbean islands.

                Beginning in the fall of 2015 Totem Ocean will begin the process of converting its two ships, the MV North Star and MV Midnight Sun to natural gas. The

                  "ANGA applauds the Texas Legislature's passage of S.C.R 32 . . . that will enable America to export natural gas . . . These policy changes will benefit American workers and consumers while providing a huge boost to our economy . . . LNG exports will allow the U.S. to enhance our energy security and . . . offering supply diversity to our allies abroad. . . We are especially thankful to Sen. Paul Bettencourt and Rep. Gene Wu, who guided these measures through the Texas Legislature. We hope that Congress and the president will heed this bipartisan message from America's leading energy producing state and seize this exceptional opportunity."

                  Statement by Frank J. Macchiarola, executive vice president of government affairs of America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), issued on 19 May 2015 in the following press release:

                    Sabine Pass set to begin exports of LNG. Texas alone produced 28 per cent of total U.S. marketed gas production during 2014, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Agency. Cheniere is also building a 23-mile 48 inch pipeline that would connect an LNG plant they are building in Corpus Christi to several interstate and intrastate pipelines, giving the facility access to robust gas resources in Texas and the Gulf Coast.

                    The Panama Canal widening project is also expected to have the wider canal open the first quarter of 2016:

                      The Marlin Class LNG powered container ship, Perla Del Caribe, was launched 25 Jan 2016 in San Diego at the General Dynamics shipyard. It will head for Jacksonville FL to join the Isla Bella on the route between Northeast Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

                          First of three LNG ferries that will begin service in British Columbia is underway on its 10,440 nautical mile voyage from Gdansk, Poland. All three can be powered by either natural gas or diesel and the voyage will include refuelling stops in Santa Cruz, Canary Islands and Panama City, Panama. The ferries are 105 metres long and can each carry 145 vehicles and 600 passengers; the three will cost a total of about $200 million.

                          Join the voyage virtually on VesselFinder.com. Or take an actual ride when the Salish Orca enters service on the Comox-Powell River route starting in spring 2017.

                            A contract to build a peak-shaving LNG plant with storage tank in Tacoma WA has been awarded to CBI. Headquartered in Houston and owned by Praxis - CBI will be building the facility for Puget Sound Energy (PSE) to provide peak shaving, marine bunkering (for Washington State Ferry s planned six new vessels), and truck loading capabilities. Nearby LNG truck fueling stations presently exist in Sumner and Fife(Tacoma). LNG tank shown is in Newport OR.

                              12 Dec 2016. Seaspan Ferries Corp (SFC) took delivery of the first of two new dual-fuelled/hybrid ferries at its terminal in Tilbury, Delta, B.C (City of Vancouver). The second is undergoing sea trials by the ship builder in Istanbul Turkey. An LNG tanker truck was used to fuel it through assistance from VARD, FortisBC, and Redwise. The (SFC) ferries are 150m long and each hold 59 trailers.

                              Both BC Ferries (prior post above) and SFC will be contracting with the LNG facility in Tilbury for LNG. Tilbury s history shows that it was providing natural gas to operations having no access to pipeline gas two decades before this business model appeared on the scene in the form of XNG/Broadwind s operations in Port Townsend/Satsop WA and the Northeast United States.

                              The original Tilbury facility was built in 1971 to supplement the Lower Mainland gas supply during periods of peak demand such as the coldest winter days. FortisBC began providing LNG as a fuel for use in remote communities in 1997 and as a transportation fuel in 2009. The current Tilbury facility can liquefy 5,000 gigajoules (GJ) of natural gas per day and has a storage capacity of 600,000 GJ. The expanded facility will be able to liquefy an additional 34,000 GJ of natural gas per day and will add 1.1 million gigajoules of additional storage capacity.

                              In addition to the two ferry operations, customers such as Vedder Transport Ltd., Arrow Transportation Systems Inc. and Denwill Enterprises Inc. acquire LNG from the existing Tilbury LNG facility. Liquefying natural gas has made it possible to truck it to remote communities without needing to build new gas pipelines. Inuvik in the Northwest Territories and Whitehorse in the Yukon are replacing diesel with LNG transported from Tilbury. Teck Resources Ltd. Is currently piloting the use of Tilbury LNG as a fuel source for mine haul trucks.
