(NEWPORT PETROLEUM, FUELTRANS LEASING LLC.)
Newport Petroleum was primarily engaged in the marine transportation, and terminalling of petroleum products along the West Coast of the United States, Canada, Mexico and Hawaii.
Newport Petroleum eventually grew its operations to include 9 ocean-going tug and barge units, with primary operators in Alaska, California, and Washington. Cabrillo Shipping, an affiliated company, was the first container-on-barge operation between the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach and Mexico.
The company was sold in 2003.
