JAX LNG Completes Its First STS LNG Bunkering of NYK Line Vessel


JAX LNG has completed its first ship-to-ship (STS) liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering of NYK Line’s Sakura Leader for the ship’s inaugural call to Jacksonville.


JAX LNG is a small-scale LNG facility specializing in both on-road and marine-loading LNG solutions near the St. Johns River. It is the only supplier in North America with access to two Jones Act LNG bunker barges, the Clean Canaveral and the Clean Jacksonville.

A New Beginning

Crews loaded approximately 800 metric tons of LNG from North America’s largest LNG bunker barge, the Clean Canaveral, owned by Polaris New Energy. In preparation for this bunkering, JAX LNG worked with Polaris New Energy to charter the Clean Canaveral, as well as with TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico for the possible use of the Clean Jacksonville.

“We are honored to have earned the trust and confidence to fuel Sakura Leader and to demonstrate our unique ability to serve NYK Line,” said Roger Williams, Manager of JAX LNG and VP of Commercial LNG and Gas Development.
