Puget Sound Energy Inc. and Totem Ocean Trailer Express Announces Fuel Supply Agreement

Puget Sound Energy and Totem Ocean Trailer Express announced they have signed a contract for PSE to provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) to fuel Totem Ocean's two Tacoma, Washington-based Orca-class cargo ships. PSE will provide Totem Ocean with fuel for their ships that are being converted from diesel to cleaner-burning LNG. Using LNG will allow Totem Ocean to exceed new, stricter emission standards in the maritime shipping industry. PSE is working to develop a new, LNG production and storage facility at the Port of Tacoma to ensure continued dependable natural gas service for the company's 760,000 residential and commercial natural gas customers by providing additional gas supply during times of peak demand. The facility will also meet the LNG supply needs of Totem Ocean and other potential transportation customers. A property lease with the Port of Tacoma was approved in August 2014 and environmental review of the proposed facility has begun. Construction is expected to take about three years once all agreements are finalized and permits have been obtained.

It will also provide an opportunity to serve local transportation companies looking to shift from traditional fuel sources to cleaner LNG.
