The United States Department Energy has cleared Eagle LNG Partners to export liquefied natural gas from its Maxville facility, located in west Jacksonville, Florida. 

DOE approved Eagle LNG Partners’ request to export up to 2.8 billion cubic feet per year of natural gas to both free-trade agreement (FTA) and non-FTA countries.

Liquefied natural gas will be loaded into ISO containers at the Maxville facility and transported by truck to the nearby Port of Jacksonville where they would be loaded onto container ships or roll-on/roll-off oceangoing carriers for export.

The Maxville facility’s principal purpose is to supply LNG to Crowley Puerto Rico for use in LNG-fueled ‘Commitment Class’ ships, however, it will have a production capacity exceeding Crowley’s needs. The excess volumes would be exported to the markets in the Caribbean basin.

At full build-out, it will have two LNG trains, one LNG storage tank with a capacity of 1 million gallons, and a truck load-out facility.

The first LNG train will have the capacity to produce approximately 7.7 million cubic feet per day of LNG or the equivalent of approximately 0.01 Bcf/d of natural gas. The second LNG train will have the capacity to produce 10.6 MMcf/d of LNG.

The facility is nearing completion with the commissioning activities well underway, DOE noted in its order granting exports. Commercial operations are expected to start in the first week of October 2017.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
