Neptune LNG is an idle liquid natural gas import facility located in the city of Everett, Massachusetts.

Background

The Neptune facility is supplemented by a deepwater terminal located 10 miles off the coast of Gloucester, Massachusetts known as the Neptune Deepwater Port.[1] The import facility was originally operationally in 2010, and only received a few small shipments that year before sitting idle.[2] Due to the facility's inability to receive a consistent supply of natural gas imports, Neptune requested the US Maritime Administration's authorization to temporarily suspend port operations for 5 years. Neptune LNG's request was approved in 2013.[3]
