Seattle-based petroleum transport company Centerline Logistics has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with engineering firm Vard Marine on the development of a 6,000-cubic-metre articulated tug and barge (ATB) that will be used for LNG bunkering.

The Jones Act-compliant ATB barge will be designed to safely navigate US and international waters and to provide LNG refueling to a variety of ships as well as call at terminals.

The barge is scheduled to go into service in 2024.
