Assisting the maritime industry in regulatory compliance

Bryant's Maritime Consulting


This site is intended to familiarize the reader with issues of significance to legislators and regulators and explain how they might impact the maritime community.  Most of the time, new developments are presnted in a straight-forward manner.  Sometimes, though, I will include my own perspective on an issue.  My perspective is just that – my own.  I welcome comment on the various topics presented – whether in support or disagreement.

    logo11 Underway on LNG

    In the April 2015 of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Underway on LNG". In the article, I discuss recent developments in the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel by US-flag vessels. The offshore supply vessel Harvey Energy is now underway on LNG in the Gulf of Mexico. TOTE is constructing two new LNG-propelled container ships and converting two others to LNG propulsion. Crowley is building two new LNG-propelled ConRo vessels. Various other ships currently under construction will be LNG-ready. Change is no longer over the horizon - it is happening now.
