New Fortress Energy Starts LNG Commercial Operations



  • New Fortress Energy (NFE) has recently started commercial operations in Mexico with a vessel that is using Argent Marine’s patented system for transporting LNG in specially designed ISO containers.
  • Argent Marine reported that the vessel has been equipped with NFE’s ISOFLEX system using a proprietary manifold.
  • And LNG cargo containment system that facilitates transloading LNG from a floating LNG terminal into multiple ISO containers onboard the vessel.

A Bunkerspot news source reveals about new fortress energy using Argent Marine’s system for transporting LNG in ISO containers.

The filled ISO containers can then be offloaded at container ports and onto trucks for delivery to customers consuming locations.

The vessel is currently operating at NFE’s LNG terminal in the port of Pichilingue, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

CTG La Paz and CTG Baja California Sur power plants

NFE plans to use the vessel to supply LNG filled ISO containers to ‘local hotels and industrial customers’, as well as to CTG La Paz and CTG Baja California Sur power plants and its own gas-fired power plant in Baja California Sur that is slated to begin operations in 2021.

NFE also said that the system will enable it to deliver LNG ‘much more quickly and less expensively to locations where natural gas is not readily available’.

Argent Marine and its technology

Argent Marine believes that its technology – which interconnects multiple ISO containers onboard ships so they can all be filled in one operation – has considerable potential for ‘use in the emerging LNG bunkering sector in the US and European markets, as well as in the expanding global small scale LNG sector’.

Furthermore, said Argent Marine: ‘In addition to LNG, the technology is applicable to distribution and bunkering other alternative liquid fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia and methanol.’
