Seaside LNG has made its first delivery to the ‘Carnival Jubilee’, an LNG-fuelled cruise ship homeported in Galveston, Texas.

After entering into a term bunkering agreement with Carnival Corp, the delivery took place on 30th December, 2023 at Galveston, after months of careful co-ordination with all parties involved, including the port authority.

This operation marked the first in port ship-to-ship LNG bunkering delivery not only in Galveston but also along the whole US Gulf Coast.

“The Seaside LNG team is excited to start 2024 off strong with these two deliveries. We appreciate the trust our customers put in us to arrange these important fuelling operations,” said Tim Casey, Seaside LNG CEO.

Seaside’s bunker barge, ‘Clean Jacksonville’, was moved from Jacksonville, Florida to operate out of Galveston and serve the Texas Gulf Coast. She has completed more than 350 bunkering operations to date.

Seaside owns 50% of JAX LNG, a small-scale (360,000 gallons per day) LNG production facility operating two trains in Jacksonville, Florida, and a 100% ownership stake in an LNG bunkering barge operation through Polaris New Energy (PNE).

PNE, the bunkering arm of Seaside LNG, maintains the US’ largest fleet of Jones Act-compliant bunkering vessels, including ‘Clean Canaveral’, ‘Clean Jacksonville’ and tug ‘Polaris’, plus ‘Clean Everglades’ and tug.
