Puerto Rican energy company EcoEléctrica has been given a green light to increase the capacity of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facilities in Guayanilla Bay.

According to a filing by the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, EcoEléctrica sought permission to increase the sendout capacity of its LNG terminal by an additional 93 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas.

With the increase, to be achieved through placing into service one of two existing spare LNG vaporizers, the facility would have a total sendout capacity of 279 MMscf per day.

Currently, the terminal consist of s marine terminal, a 1,000,000-barrel (120,000-cbm) LNG storage tank, and four LNG vaporizers each with a peak sendout capacity of 96 MMscf per day receiving two cargoes per month.

EcoEléctrica is presently authorized to send out a total of approximately 186 MMscf of regasified LNG per day delivering natural gas to Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s Costa Sur power plant as well as using it in its own cogeneration facility.

The added sendout capacity would also be delivered to PREPA’s facility, FERC notes, adding the plant would be receiving approximately 40 LNG cargoes per year.

The project would not involve any new construction or modification of the existing facilities.
