Eagle LNG Partners said it has selected Matrix Service, a unit of Matrix Service Company, for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of an LNG export facility, to be built in Jacksonville, Florida.
Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG export facility, which will require an investment of approximately $500 million based on final design, will also utilize Chart Industries’ IPSMR technology and liquefaction equipment technology.
The facility will have a production capacity of approximately 1.65 million LNG-gallons per day with 12 million LNG-gallons of storage plus a marine terminal and truck-loading capabilities, Eagle LNG Partners said in its statement.
“Eagle LNG is experiencing a growing demand for LNG to serve small-scale export markets, while domestic demand for fuel-grade LNG continues to increase,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG.
“We continue to build out LNG infrastructure across the country to meet these needs. Partnering with Matrix Service and Chart Industries provides service from concept through completion,” he said.
The Jacksonville LNG export facility will serve as the Caribbean’s proximal LNG source loading LNG onto small, ocean-going vessels for export to countries currently using heavy fuel oil or diesel for power generation.
Eagle LNG will continue to serve domestic marine fueling and exporting LNG in ISO containers for Caribbean markets from Eagle LNG’s Maxville LNG facility, also located in Jacksonville, Florida.
Eagle LNG received both FERC authorization and the Department of Energy LNG export approvals for the Jacksonville LNG Export Facility in late 2019.
