The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Comission issued a notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement for the planned Jacksonville LNG project.
FERC will examine the potential environmental effects of the Eagle LNG Partner’s proposed project on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida that involves the construction and operation of an LNG production, storage and export facility.
According to the FERC filing, the notice also marks the opening of the scoping process during which the commission will gather input from the public and interested agencies. The scoping period is scheduled to close on March 26, 2015.
At full build-out, the Jacksonville project would include three LNG trains having the capacity to produce 300,000 gallons of LNG per train (0.18 Mtpa per train; total of 0.55 Mtpa), from approximately 25 MMcf/d of natural gas per train. Current plans include one LNG storage tank, 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.
