SEA\LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition accelerating the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, on Tuesday (27 August) expanded its membership network with Houston-based Stabilis Energy.
Stabilis Energy provides small-scale LNG production, distribution and fuelling services to multiple end markets in North America.
It owns and operates a liquefaction and storage facility in George West, Texas, as well as a fleet of over 150 pieces of cryogenic rolling stock equipment throughout North America.
Stabilis supplies LNG for use in the industrial, mining, energy, utility, pipeline, and transportation end markets, as well as marine bunkering services.
“LNG is an increasingly important part of the marine bunkering infrastructure throughout North America and across the globe,” said Jim Reddinger, President and Chief Executive Officer at Stabilis Energy.
“We specialise in producing LNG and delivering it to its last port of call, as it were, where it is ready for transfer to ocean-going vessels. As members of SEA\LNG we look forward to supporting this integral part of the growing LNG bunkering network throughout North America and beyond.”
Peter Keller, Chairman, SEA\LNG, commented: “Welcoming Stabilis Energy as a new member demonstrates SEA\LNG’s continued commitment within the ever expanding North American LNG market. LNG is growing in importance in both the energy and marine bunkering markets. Stabilis operates at the forefront of this expansion.”
“Communication and collaboration across the LNG value chain is essential to breaking down barriers to the adoption of LNG as an important and economically viable marine fuel.
“It is encouraging to see Stabilis Energy engaging with its partners to strengthen the small-scale LNG network. We look forward to working with them to expand LNG bunkering infrastructure in the Americas.”
