Puget LNG, LLC and GAC Bunker Fuels Limited have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate in the supply and sale of clean-burning LNG marine fuel from Puget LNG’s terminal to GAC’s customers in the Pacific Northwest. When the Tacoma LNG Terminal becomes operational in the second quarter of 2021, it will be the first such terminal on North America’s west coast providing direct shoreside loading access for a bunker barge. GAC Bunker Fuels is planning to issue a Request for Proposal for a Jones Act-compliant LNG bunker barge to be constructed, owned, and operated by a third party.  Loading from Puget LNG’s terminal in Tacoma, the barge will be able to bunker vessels in port in 2023.  In April SeaspanLNG announced its Approval in Principle with Bureau Veritas to design a 7600cbm bunker vessel to provided ship-to-ship LNG transfers.
