MarAd has decided to issue a deepwater port license
to SUEZ Energy North America's subsidiary, Neptune LNG LLC to build, own, and operate the Neptune offshore LNG
delivery system in Massachusetts Bay. Neptune is the first offshore LNG project
on the United States' East Coast to reach this milestone.
The Neptune terminal will be based on the LNG Shuttle and Regasification Vessel System (SRV) developed by Höegh LNG.
Höegh LNG, together with partner Mitsui OSK Lines, has two plus one optional 145 000 m3 SRVs on order with Samsung Heavy Industries. The first will be delivered in 2009.
