Eagle LNG informed in a filing to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued on Monday that it has signed a front-end engineering and design (FEED) deal with CH-IV during December.
The two companies completed a technical evaluation enabling Eagle LNG to up the production capacity from 900,000 gallons per day to 1,5000,000 gallons per day of liquefied natural gas, potentially increase the storage capacity and utilize a mixed refrigerant liquefaction technology at its proposed facility located along the St. Johns River in the City of Jacksonville, Florida.
Eagle LNG expects the basic design of the facility as well as the footprint to remain the same. The initially proposed facility included three liquefaction trains with a 0.18 mtpa production capacity each, but according to the reworked plans, each train will have the capacity to produce 0.3 mtpa of LNG.
It will include over 8,000,000 gallons of total storage on site in at least one, and possibly two, LNG storage tanks, a marine load-out facility and dock that could accommodate small- to mid-size LNG vessels as well as bunkering barges (for domestic ship fueling at the Port of Jacksonville), and a truck load-out facility.
Eagle LNG added in its filing that it expects to file a draft resource report 13 and necessary update by May 2016.
