The US Coast Guard completed oversight of the first foreign vessel to bunker Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as fuel in Jacksonville, Tuesday. The Swedish tankship, Fure Ven, moored alongside Talleyrand Marine Terminal to take on LNG as fuel. The Fure Ven is the first-ever foreign vessel with plans to bunker LNG in Jacksonville. LNG offers a clean alternative with 100% reduction of sulfur oxides and 90% reduction of nitric oxides when compared to heavy fuel oil.
