AET, a leading owner and operator of maritime transportation assets and specialized services, completed its first-ever LNG bunkering in the US, working in coordination with Shell to refuel the LNG dual-fuel Aframax tanker Pacific Ruby outside Port Canaveral in Florida says an article on AET Tankers.

The bunkering operation

The transfer of 600 Metric Tons of marine LNG onto the 113,305 DWT petroleum tanker from the Q-LNG 4000 bunker barge was safely and successfully completed within three hours while the entire bunkering operations took nine hours.

First vessel bunkering in the US

The operation was coordinated by AET and Shell NA LNG LLC while Pacific Ruby was on its way from Houston bound for Rotterdam. AET’s Commercial and Operations Teams out of Houston both commercially and operationally managed the full process with Shell and the crew of Pacific Ruby ensuring efficiency and safety for this first vessel bunkering in the US.

Lower emission fuels

This bunkering milestone also represents further progress in AET’s commitment to reduce the environmental impact of shipping by using lower emission fuels worldwide. It also represents another example of the rapid extension of LNG bunkering facilities in the US and globally, allowing LNG supply for transatlantic tanker routes between Europe and the US.
