Louisiana out in front on LNG bunkering infrastructure. New Orleans-based Harvey Gulf International Marine (HGIM) has announced the ground breaking of construction on its $25 million Phase 1, Slip B, LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) fueling facility at their Port Fourchon, LA terminal. When operational later this year, HGIM’s LNG facility will be the first of its kind in the United States. This technologically-advanced, environmentally-safe, clean energy facility will be a vital addition to the growing national LNG supply infrastructure, supporting critical operations of the oil and gas industry’s offshore fleet as well as over-the-road vehicles operating on clean LNG. "Today’s milestone represents another significant step in the path for Harvey Gulf to establish itself as the nation’s leader in utilizing LNG as a marine fuel. HGIM is investing $350 million in the construction of a LNG-operated fleet. The dual fuel vessels and our LNG facility further expand HGIM’s commitment to develop and utilize the safest, most environmentally-friendly vessels and fuel technology available today. This fleet and facility signify a strong partnership between the State of Louisiana, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Coast Guard, and Harvey Gulf with a common goal of leading our nation down the path of clean energy use and strengthening America’s future of energy independence,” said CEO Shane Guidry.
