JPS, New Fortress Energy finalize LNG supply deal

Jamaica’s energy company, JPS, said that it has signed an agreement with New Fortress Energy for the supply of gas to Jamaica, after receiving approvals from the Jamaican Government and the Office of Utilities Regulation.

Under the agreement, US-based New Fortress Energy will provide JPS with LNG for its 120-megawatt power plant in Western Jamaica, at Bogue, Montego Bay.

The plant, which was first commissioned into service in 2003, is being converted to run on gas instead of automotive diesel oil, the company said in a statement.

The signing of the gas supply agreement has set the stage for work to begin on the infrastructure needed for the delivery of gas to Bogue by early 2016, the company added.
