GULFPORT — Two new tugboats have been christened at Trinity Offshore in Gulfport will soon be escorting ships transporting natural gas from Angola, West Africa into the Port of Pascagoula.

The motor vessels “Constellation” and “Stars and Stripes” are owned by Signet Maritime Corporation. The tugs are named after two past America’s Cup winners.

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., spoke at the event.

Signet will use the tugs to execute a 20-year marine transportation contract from Angola LNG Supply Services, which supplies liquefied natural gas to Gulf LNG Energy’s $1.1 billion liquefied natural gas terminal in Pascagoula.

The terminal, in full production this fall, is capable of pumping more than 1.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day to markets in Mississippi and across the Southeast.
