Eagle LNG has received a final environmental impact statement (FEIS) from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct the Jacksonville LNG export facility.

Eagle LNG said last Friday that the FEIS was the final step in the environmental review process before the final federal authorization decision deadline and anticipated FERC approval of the project.

Sean Lalani, president of Eagle LNG, stated: “Achieving this critical milestone is a significant step forward for Eagle’s Jacksonville LNG export facility as we continue to advance our efforts to supply clean-burning, domestic, and affordable LNG for marine bunkering and small-scale LNG export to both domestic and international markets.

The FEIS is a result of FERC’s comprehensive process that Eagle LNG started in December 2014, and includes the completion of numerous comprehensive environmental, safety, and security reviews involving input from both federal and state agencies and various stakeholders.

The proposed Jacksonville LNG project will initially consist of three liquefaction trains, which will be capable of producing up to 1.65 million gallons of LNG per day, or approximately 1 million tonnes per annum.

The Jacksonville LNG facility, with its prime Florida East Coast location, will give us a unique and competitive advantage in helping provide some of the lowest-cost power generation for nearby Caribbean countries. With approximately $500 million of infrastructure investment, this project will continue to generate numerous well-paying direct and indirect jobs in Florida,” added Lalani.
