LNG Bunkering Infrastructure: LNG bunkering in the Port of Jacksonville


In the space of just over three years, Jacksonville has gone from a port with limited experience of LNG, no existing infrastructure, and a relatively small market in marine fuel bunkering, to become the leading LNG bunkering operation in the US and one of the first movers globally. The Jacksonville case study illustrates the importance of a forward-looking anchor customer and strong leadership. This is what provided the catalyst for innovative supply chain investments, with both customer and supply chain collaborating closely with the port, regulatory authorities, local emergency services and communities.
