Crowley delivers LNG to Puerto Rico pharma firm

The container transportation contract will be managed through Crowley’s Carib Energy subsidiary.

   Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Liquefied Natural Gas services group received a second, multi-year contract to supply containerized LNG to a pharmaceutical company’s manufacturing plants in Puerto Rico. 
   The contract will be managed through Crowley’s Carib Energy subsidiary. Crowley did not name the pharmaceutical firm in its press release.
   Crowley’s domestic logistics operation will manage the transportation of LNG in 40-foot intermodal containers from U.S. liquefaction plants to the Port of Jacksonville. The containers will then be loaded onto Crowley’s vessels departing for Puerto Rico. Upon arrival on the island, Crowley will deliver the LNG to the customer’s facilities. Once there, the LNG will be re-gasified into pipeline natural gas for boiler consumption, the carrier explained.
   Last year, Crowley entered the LNG market by acquiring Florida-based Carib Energy. Founded in 2011, the Crowley company was the first to receive a small scale, 25-year LNG export license from the Energy Department for LNG transport from the United States.
   In March, Crowley entered its first multi-year contract with Coca-Cola Bottlers of Puerto Rico to supply containerized LNG to two of the manufacturer’s plants in Cayey and Cidra. Crowley said it’s “currently in negotiations with several other potential industrial customers that will soon convert to LNG.”
