First Yemenese LNG Tanker Arrives in Boston Harbor

Waterfront residents received a 5:00 am wakeup call this morning. Between the helicopter noise, flashing lights and sirens, folks knew that “it” had arrived. The first 395-foot long liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker from Yemen was here.

Initially a dot on the harbor grew quickly to dominate the waterway as the ship made its way past the North End/Waterfront area to dock at the Everett terminal. The boat will stay for about 2 days before departing. About 2-3 Yemenese LNG tankers will arrive per month for the next 20 years.
