    Will Owen for LNG Industry 14 Dec 2020 - Ships on Lake Ontario will now be able to refuel with LNG

    Due to a partnership between the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (Toronto Canada) and REV LNG, on 9 December 2020, for the first time ever on the Great Lakes a marine vessel was refuelled with LNG. Carrying a load of asphalt, the MV Damia Desgagnés docked at the Port of Hamilton’s Pier 22 to refuel before departing for Detroit.

    REV LNG, a Pennsylvania-based LNG services provider, presided over the commercial and technical development of the project, LNG transportation and all shore-side operations.

    Pivotal LNG, a leading provider of LNG marine fuel in the US, supported the project with its expertise and LNG supply from the recently operational Towanda Liquefaction and Storage Facility, located in Bradford County, Pennsylvania.

    “Our LNG fuelled fleet has now expanded to five Canadian flagged tankers all operating in the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence Seaway system, Eastern Canada and US as well as the Canadian Arctic,” said Jacques Beauchamp, President, Petro-Nav Inc. (a subsidiary of Desgagnés).

    Currently, the only LNG capacity at ports in Canada exists along the west coast in BC and the St Lawrence River in Montreal and Quebec City.

      Adnan Bajic for OffshoreEnergy Feb 5, 2021 - EIA: U.S. LNG outpacing pipeline exports

      According to the U.S Energy Information Administration’s Natural Gas Monthly LNG exports exceeded pipeline exports in November 2020 by 1.2 billion cubic feet per day. In November and December 2020, U.S. LNG exports set two consecutive monthly records at 9.4 Bcf/d and 9.8 Bcf/d, respectively.

      Since November 2020, all six U.S. LNG export facilities have been operating near full design capacity. In December, Corpus Christi LNG facility in Texas commissioned its third and final liquefaction unit six months ahead of schedule, bringing the total U.S. liquefaction capacity to 9.5 Bcf/d baseload (10.8 Bcf/d peak) across six export terminals that include 15 standard-size liquefaction units and 10 small modular liquefaction units.

      A total of 22 tankers departed the United States LNG export facilities between January 28 and February 3, 2021. The vessels had a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 80 Billion cubic feet (Bcf). Out of the 22 cargoes, nine were exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility, four each from Cameron and Freeport exports plants and three from the Corpus Christi plant. Additional two cargoes have been exported from Dominion’s Cove Point plant in Maryland.

        The two ferries, to enter service in 2022 and 2023, are each equipped with two Wartsila 12V46DF engines generating 18,500 hp per engine. Each ferry carries 1015 passengers, with over 1.7 miles of lane-space to house passenger and freight vehicles.

        The facilities for storing LNG will be supplied by Repsol in Spain. The fuel company will build two quayside LNG bunkering terminals in the ports of Santander and Bilbao, including a 250,000 ga storage tank.
