Suez Reaches Agreement to Provide American Personnel for LNG Vessels

MARAD announced an agreement yesterday between Suez LNG; the Massachusetts Maritime Academy; and the International Organization of Masters, Mates, and Pilots to recruit, train, and supply U.S. citizen mariners for service on LNG tankers chartered or owned by Suez LNG. This agreement furthers Suez LNG’s commitment to MARAD that at least 25% of the crews on as many as three vessels delivering LNG to the Neptune Deepwater Port will be American citizens by 2012. Marine Log provides further details.
