LNG ship gets a name

PASCAGOULA, Miss. - VT Halter Marine officially named its new LNG (liquified natural gas) ship during a ceremony Monday morning that featured U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo and Mississippi’s two senators, Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith. VT Halter Marine was awarded a contract in 2017 to build the first ATB (articulated tug and barge) LNG vessel constructed in America. The ship, named Q-LNG 4000, is designed to provide ship-to-ship transfers of LNG to vessels that use LNG as a fuel source, and also ship-to-shore transfers to small scale marine distribution infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico and abroad. The ship is part of a long-term contract with Shell Trading Co. to deliver LNG as a fuel source to ports in Florida and the Caribbean. The anticipated delivery date is the first quarter of 2020.
