Crowley sells two Jones Act tankers to Kinder Morgan

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- Crowley Maritime's petroleum services group has sold two Jones Act tankers, the Pennsylvania and Florida, to Kinder Morgan Energy Partners.

Crowley will continue to manage the vessels with no changes in crewing or operations. Pennsylvania and Florida have been under long-term charter, transporting gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and crude oil, since being placed into service in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Under the new ship management agreement with Kinder Morgan for the Pennsylvania and Florida, Crowley will continue to utilize sailors from the American Maritime Officers Union and Seafarers International Union, who have safely operated these tankers since their inception. The company’s ship management group provides worldwide technical management, operating ships for others as if they belonged to Crowley.

“Kinder Morgan’s continued expansion into the Jones Act tanker market demonstrates our commitment to provide customers with a variety of safe and efficient means to store and transport crude, petroleum products and chemicals,” said John Schlosser, President of KMP’s Terminals segment. “We are delighted to expand our relationship with Crowley, a premier provider of marine transportation services.”
