Crowley Christens 3rd LNG-Ready Product Tanker

Florida-based shipping company Crowley Maritime Corporation christened on Thursday Louisiana, the latest of its four new Jones Act product tankers at the Port of New Orleans. 

Having received the American Bureau of Shipping’s (ABS) LNG-Ready Level 1 approval, Louisiana has a potential for future conversion to LNG propulsion.

Designed by South Korean Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD), the four Jones Act product tankers are being built for the company by Philly Shipyard (PSI) in Philadelphia.

The 50,000 dwt Louisiana is capable of carrying 330,000 barrels of product.

With its length of 600 feet, the ship has the capacity to transport crude oil or refined petroleum products, as well as various chemical cargoes. It will operate in the U.S. Gulf, according to Crowley.

Louisiana joined sister ships Ohio and Texas, which were delivered in October and December 2015, respectively.

Crowley’s fourth tanker is under construction at PSI and its delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2016.
