Russian shipping company Sovcomflot and Shell have completed the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering of a large ocean-going tanker in U.S. waters.
The Sovcomflot-operated Gagarin Prospect, an LNG-fueled Aframax tankers, is on long-term charter to Shell. The tanker was underway recently from Corpus Christi, Texas to Europe when it met up with the LNG bunkering vessel Q-LNG 4000 off Port Canaveral, Florida, to receive 1,075 cubic meters of marine LNG bunkers.
Sovcomflot said the operation demonstrates the rapid expansion of LNG bunkering infrastructure, particularly on the transatlantic tanker trade between Europe and the US Gulf, and the US Gulf and East Coast Canada.
