The vessel is the first in a series of four sisterships to be delivered from the shipbuilder following the acquisition by Crowley Maritime from Aker Philadelphia Shipyard Inc., (APSI). The vessel is unique as she was delivered from the shipbuilder ready for using LNG for propulsion.  According to the shipbuilder’s press releases at the time of the delivery of the tanker, the shipbuilder also sold their equity stake in the JV with Crowley for these vessels to a subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) placing an enterprise value of $150 million for each of the sistership vessels to the MT ‘Ohio’.

An interesting article on the shale oil market and the impact on the Jones Act tanker market was published in the past by Reuters under the title: Analysis: Shale oil storm blows U.S. tanker trade out of doldrums‘.
