Q-LNG Transport has confirmed that the first offshore LNG bunkering and articulated tug and barge (ATB) unit to sail under the US flag is now ready for operations.

Built by VT Halter Marine, Q-LNG 4000 is designed to provide ship-to-ship transfers of LNG to vessels utilising LNG and ship-to-shore transfers to small scale marine distribution infrastructure along the southeastern US coast.

The ATB can transport up to 4,000 cubic metres of LNG on each trip.
