Skinner, the steam engine people. They can turn you on- to cogeneration, marine propul- sion, equipment drive, and "free" steam to perform other energy-saving, money-saving jobs. On ship and on shore. jilding steam engines 1f2 years ago, and never really stopped. They just put one in for Lord Corpor- ation in Erie, PA, that will gen- erate enough electricity and low pressure steam to pay for the equipment in three years.
When coal was the fuel for marine vessels, steam engines by Skinner were first in per- formance and first in prefer- ence. Now that owners are considering a return to avail- able, affordable coal, Skinner know-how is only a phone call away. Ask Dick Whiting how coal power fits in your future.

Ogden Applies For CDS
And Amended Title XI
On Three LNG Carriers
To Cost $861 Million
Ogden Marine Indonesia, Inc., a subsidiary of Ogden Marine,
Inc., New York, has applied to the
Maritime Administration for con- construction-differential subsidy (CDS), and amended its 1975 ap- plication for a Title XI guarantee to aid in financing the construc- tion of three liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.
General Dynamics Corporation,
Quincy, Mass., is the proposed shipbuilder, and anticipates deliv- ery of the first 65,750-dwt (125,- 000-cubic-meter) vessel by 1986.
Ogden Marine plans to use the ships to transport liquefied na- tural gas between Indonesia and the U.S. West Coast. Each LNG is expected to cost approximately $287 million. If approved, the
Title XI guarantee would cover 75 percent of the shipbuilding costs not covered by Federal con- struction subsidies.
Ogden Marine's applications represent the second financing re- quest received by the Maritime
Administration within a month in connection with the transporta- tion of LNG from Indonesia to
California for use by Pacific Gas and Electric Company and Pacific
Lighting Corporation. The first application, also involving three ships, was received from Zapata
Western LNG Inc. of Houston.
