Galveston LNG Bunker Port comes onboard SEA-LNG coalition

Galveston LNG Bunker Port (GLBP), a joint venture between Seapath Group and Pilot LNG, has joined SEA-LNG, a multi-sector industry coalition promoting LNG as a marine fuel.

By becoming a SEA-LNG member, Galveston LNG Bunker Port expects to further enhance the industry coalition’s LNG supply infrastructure expertise and global reach, while gaining access to the latest LNG pathway research and networking opportunities.

GLBP was announced in September 2023 and aims to develop, construct, and operate the U.S. Gulf Coast’s first dedicated facility supporting the fueling of LNG-powered vessels, expected to be operational in late 2026.

Recently, the project secured a lease agreement with the City of Texas City for 140 acres of land on Shoal Point in Galveston County. The final investment decision (FID) for is expected by the second half of 2024.

The project design includes a two-train and two-tank facility producing 600,000 gallons per day. The first phase of the GLBP project is expected to produce 300,000 gallons per day of LNG for sale into the marine bunker fuel market in the Galveston Bay, and Western Gulf of Mexico region.
