Conrad Shipyard is building the first LNG Bunker Barge for the U.S. market at its Conrad Orange facility located in Orange, Texas.

The use of LNG as a marine fuel is the next logical step in vessel development.  Our goal is to engage in fostering the infrastructure necessary to expand downstream market capabilities and fully develop the LNG supply chain.

We believe that LNG as a marine fuel will prove to be instrumental in reducing emissions and providing operators with long term economic advantages.  Conrad LNG will continue to develop and market various vessel concepts and bunkering supply chain solutions including bunker vessels, FLNG’s, FRU’s, LNG fueled towboats and storage and cargo handling systems.

Conrad is working with equipment manufacturers to develop existing LNG technologies for small scale applications.

Conrad actively participates with regulatory agencies and industry to support the downstream development of LNG as a marine fuel.

Conrad is industrializing GTT’s REACH4 bunker mast concept for use on the first LNG bunker barge for North America.
