USCG declares St. John River suitable for Eagle LNG traffic

The United States Coast Guard declared the St. John River suitable for LNG marine traffic related to the Eagle LNG Partners’ proposed export terminal in Jacksonville, Florida. 

The USCG sent a letter of recommendation (LOR) to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, following the completion of the follow-on Waterway Suitability Assessment for the Eagle LNG export terminal.

The review focused on the navigation safety and maritime security aspects of LNG vessel transits along the affected waterway and included an assessment of the risks posed by these transits and possible risk management measures.

USCG’s Sector Jacksonville reanalyzed Eagle LNG’s zones of concern (ZOC) based on FERC’s recommended guidance with new distances along the entire vessel transit route, determining that the increased coverage area did not significantly change the risk results outlined in Eagle LNG’s WSA.

Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville facility will serve bost domestic and international markets. The company noted an increase in demand for LNG in the small-scale export markets, while the domestic demand for LNG in transport continues to develop.

The project will have a processing capacity of 1.5 million gallons of LNG per day, with on-site LNG storage of 12 million gallons.

The construction is preliminarily scheduled for the first quarter of 2018, and start-up and commissioning in the third quarter of 2019.
