    Hello.
    It will be possible for the ferry to be refulled at LNG terminal.
    Do you think the sentence makes sense?

    It would make more sense for it to be refuelled.

    And possibly the LNG terminal or LNG terminals.

    Or even 'an LNG terminal'.

    It does depend on the reader knowing what LNG stands for, but that would vary depending on your target audience.


    Where I live it's well known, because we have extensive gas deposits (and oil to a lesser extent), and the various production industries are a major source of employment. I imagine it's noticeably less familiar in other regions of the US, as it's primarily used just as a storage and transportation method for natural gas.

    Here, we're just starting to see the first talk of it eventually being publicly available as motor fuel.
