Eagle LNG Partners has announced that the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued the order granting authorisation for siting and constructing its proposed on-water Jacksonville LNG export facility.
The LNG export facility and terminal, planned in Jacksonville, Florida, will have a production capacity of approximately 1.65 million gal./d with 12 million gal. of storage plus marine and truck-loading capabilities located on-site.
“The FERC authorisation for Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG export facility has been many years and countless hours in the making. As one of only a handful of greenfield LNG project proponents to obtain their FERC order, and the only project devoted to provisioning small-scale LNG projects in the Caribbean basin, Eagle LNG is one large step closer to delivering clean-burning, affordable, domestically produced US natural gas.” said Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG. “Numerous independent studies have shown that sourcing LNG for power generation allows Caribbean island nations the ability to substantially reduce power costs and simultaneously reduce CO2 emissions by 30 – 40% as compared to fuel oil and coal. Eagle LNG acknowledges that this project would not have been possible without the continued support of the Jacksonville community and key stakeholders regionally and in North Florida.”
Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG Export facility will have a construction cost of approximately US$500 million with a continuing positive economic and employment impact for the southeast US, State of Florida and the North Florida region.
“Exports in small volumes from our existing Maxville LNG facility are already providing low cost, domestically produced US natural gas as an early, stable fuel source for the Caribbean. The proposed Jacksonville LNG Export facility will not only drive and create economic growth in Florida and the US, it is crucial for the expansion of new US/Caribbean LNG trade opportunities,” continued Lalani.
In addition to providing low cost US natural gas to the Caribbean basin, once Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG facility is completed and its operations combined with Eagle LNG’s Maxville LNG Facility and the Talleyrand LNG Bunker Station, Eagle LNG will be providing some of the lowest cost LNG for bunkering in the southeast US.
