nder the terms of the contract, Stabilis will supply firm LNG deliveries on a ratable basis from its owned liquefaction facility in Texas over the two-year contract, with an option to extend the contract for up to an additional two years at the request of Carnival Corporation.

…stated Westy Ballard, President and CEO of Stabilis.
As part of our ambition to achieve net-zero carbon ship operations by 2050, we’re investing in LNG-powered vessels because LNG delivers immediate greenhouse gas emission reductions and is the best available market-ready fuel to help cut ship greenhouse gas emissions now.

Over the next three years, we anticipate the global fleet of LNG-fueled vessels will increase materially, as operators seek to reduce carbon emissions through the adoption of lower-cost sustainable fuel sources.
