    Eagle LNG, Crowley to provide LNG for pharmaceutical company in Puerto Rico

    Crowley Fuels and Eagle LNG Partners have signed a multi-year agreement to supply a major pharmaceutical company in Puerto Rico with containerized liquefied natural gas (LNG) - an expansion of LNG supply chain services for customers seeking cleaner, cost-effective alternative fuel. “Crowley is pleased to be partnering with Eagle LNG, a world-class LNG supplier in the Jacksonville area, to serve our customer in Puerto Rico, who will benefit from full supply chain solutions while using a fuel source that offers strong reliability and lower emissions for industrial and commercial uses,” said Crowley’s Greg Buffington, vice president, LNG.

    After production at Eagle LNG’s new Maxville Facility in Jacksonville, LNG is loaded into Crowley’s 10,700-gallon international shipping organization (ISO) tank containers. These ISO containers then are transported via truck and loaded onto Crowley vessels at the Port of Jacksonville (JAXPORT). Crowley provides ocean transportation and truck delivery of the LNG to customers in Puerto Rico.

    “We are proud to be providing LNG for Crowley’s Puerto Rico clients from our Maxville production facility in Jacksonville. The Maxville facility is the embodiment of the commitment to North Florida and Puerto Rico that Eagle LNG and Crowley have made,” said Linda Berndt, vice president, Eagle LNG. “Providing LNG from a local supply point offers simplified logistics and assured supplies at competitive prices for Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and the numerous regional customers who are adopting LNG in their businesses.”

    The newly commissioned LNG liquefaction plant in west Jacksonville has a capacity of 200,000 gallons per day with fast access to the Jacksonville port. The Eagle LNG Maxville Facility has a 1-million-gallon storage tank and a modern system to load fuel into the ISO containers for truck delivery to the port. The Maxville Facility includes a new truck load-out design allowing faster loading of LNG into ISO containers. The plant also will provide fuel for Crowley’s new LNG-powered, Commitment Class combination container/roll-on roll-off “ConRo” ships when they are deployed this year.

    Crowley has transported LNG to customers in Puerto Rico since 2014. Crowley’s LNG group offers engineering services as well as transportation and distribution of LNG in the U.S. mainland, Alaska, Caribbean and Latin America, operating under the Crowley FUELS business unit.

    For more than 65 years, Crowley has been a leading provider of ocean transportation and supply chain services between Puerto Rico and the U.S. mainland.
