Pivotal LNG expands with Great Lakes bunkering

Support for LNG bunkering operations in the US Great Lakes region marked a first for regional shippers, Pivotal LNG said August 2.

Pivotal lauded the operations at its Towanda LNG facility in northern Pennsylvania as a well-positioned asset supporting bunkering operations in the Great Lakes region of North America. In December, a month before its official in-service date, the facility supplied LNG to support bunkering operations at the Port of Hamilton, off the coast of Canada.

The company said that was a first for the Great Lakes region, marking a regional milestone.

“With a production capacity of 50,000 gallons per day and approximately 180,000 gallons of on-site storage, Towanda LNG provides affordable and reliable LNG supplies to customers ranging from commercial and industrial users to local gas utilities and power generation facilities,” the company said.

Pivotal is involved in two other LNG facilities, in Alabama and Florida. Combined with Towanda, the company has approximately 230,000 gallons/d of liquefaction capacity and 7mn gallons of storage.
