Eagle LNG Partners files for application for Jacksonville project

Eagle LNG Partners filed its formal application with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission seeking a permit to site, construct and operate natural gas liquefaction and export facilities located at a site on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida.

The proposed Project consists of three liquefaction trains, and at full build-out, will be capable of producing up to 1.65 million gallons of LNG per day, or approximately 1 million tons per annum, the company said in its statement.

The produced LNG will be transported to markets in the Caribbean and Latin America for power generation. It will also be delivered to local and regional markets, including marine bunkering and high horsepower applications for domestic consumption.

“The dramatic growth of natural gas supply in the United States has created abundant and affordable natural gas reserves that make LNG a competitively priced fuel alternative to diesel and heavy fuel oil,” Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG said.

Eagle LNG further said that the project is well positioned to support the fueling needs of the maritime industry. In November 2016 the International Maritime Organization’s Marine Environment Protection Committee confirmed the global 0.5 percent cap on sulphur content in marine fuel will come into force in 2020.

The company expects to receive the permit by the first quarter of 2018 with commercial operations to start in 2019.
