Recognizing that the use of LNG is the next logical progression in the development of cleaner burning marine fuels, Conrad Shipyard formed a new business unit focused on LNG related projects – Conrad LNG.  Conrad LNG is actively engaged in the development of LNG as a marine fuel and will continue to pursue other LNG opportunities, including developing additional designs for transport and bunker vessels, dual-fuel powered towboats, and other research and development projects.

Conrad Shipyard delivered the first LNG Bunker Barge built in North America at its Orange, Texas shipyard in August of 2018.  Vessels utilizing LNG as a fuel meet all current and anticipated emissions standards while ultimately providing a significant long term economic advantage for Owners and Operators.
