Jones Act carrier goes extra mile to deliver jet fuel to Puerto Rico

From Marine Log:

Crowley Petroleum Services has completed delivery of more than 177,000 barrels of Jet A-1 fuel to Puerto Rico aboard the company owned and operated articulated tug barge (ATB) Innovation / 650-9.

The loaded vessel departed Corpus Christi, Texas, last week and transported the fuel to San Juan, where it is being safely discharged for use in commercial aircraft.

Though Crowley’s ATBs aren’t regularly scheduled between the U.S. mainland and Puerto Rico, the company was able to supply the Jones Act vessel as a spot charter within a short time window to support a customer’s requirements. About 90 percent of the fuel consumed in Puerto Rico comes from foreign sources and is delivered on foreign vessels.
