  • The LNG was sourced at Pivotal LNG’s production facility located in Trussville, Alabama.
  • Renewable natural gas (RNG) is compatible with existing natural gas infrastructure, providing a practical and replicable source of energy that mitigates carbon emissions.
  • Today, Harvey Gulf owns five PSVs that can be fuelled by RLNG, enabling clients who charter the vessels to obtain a Carbon Neutral Certificate for their related operations.

Pivotal LNG, the owner and operator of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, made an announcement on Monday (March 21). It has completed the first delivery of Renewable Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) to Harvey Gulf International Marine’s Carbon-Neutral Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) as reported by Manifold Times.

Nation’s energy landscape

The tri-fuel vessel operates exclusively on LNG and battery power, with diesel fuel as a backup, making it the first carbon-neutral PSV worldwide.

“Pivotal LNG is always looking for innovative ways that our product can help transform our nation’s energy landscape,” said Roger Williams, VP of Commercial LNG and Gas Development at BHE GT&S, the parent company of Pivotal LNG.

The RLNG delivered to the PSV utilises negative-carbon-intensity biomethane sourced from swine waste supplied by Element Markets.

LNG facility 

The LNG was sourced at Pivotal LNG’s production facility located in Trussville, Alabama.

Pivotal LNG has the same RLNG delivery capability as JAX LNG, its facility in Jacksonville, Florida, and its LNG facility in Towanda, Pennsylvania.

Renewable natural gas (RNG) is compatible with existing natural gas infrastructure, providing a practical and replicable source of energy that mitigates carbon emissions.

“We also extend acknowledgement to Monarch Bioenergy for producing the ultra-low carbon RNG used in this latest bunkering event.”

Reducing emissions

Today, Harvey Gulf owns five PSVs that can be fuelled by RLNG, enabling clients who charter the vessels to obtain a Carbon Neutral Certificate for their related operations.

“We look forward to growing our relationship with Pivotal LNG as our clients move towards RLNG in order to reduce emissions within 25 miles of a drilling location.

My company is fully committed to carbon reduction and this partnership with Pivotal LNG is very much appreciated,” said Shane Guidry, Chairman & CEO of Harvey Gulf International Marine.
