Tanker Offshore

Received this 10 minutes ago.


Good afternoon Paul and Dan,

We have been informed that the U.S. Coast Guard has directed the LNG transport ship that’s scheduled to take on LNG from our facility to anchor overnight tonight offshore from your communities.

The ship is expected to arrive after sundown tonight, set anchor in the USCG-designated area, and depart around sunrise tomorrow for our offshore platform.

We have been reassured that this is not going to be a routine activity. We have been told that this action is related to the security screening process that’s part of the Coast Guard’s security program for LNG transport vessels.

I’ll keep you advised if we learn of any change in plans.

Thank you.
