Eagle LNG files FERC application for Jacksonville LNG project

Published by

Eagle LNG Partners has announced that it has filed its formal application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorisation to site, construct and operate natural gas liquefaction and export facilities at a site located on the St. Johns River, Jacksonville, Florida, US.

The proposed Jacksonville LNG project features three liquefaction trains. At full build-out, it will be able to produce up to 1 million tpy of LNG (1.65 million gal./d).

The LNG will then be transported to markets in both Latin America and the Caribbean, where it will be used for power generation. It will also be delivered to local and regional markets, including marine bunkering and high horsepower applications for domestic consumption.

Dick Brown, the CEO of Eagle LNG, said: “The dramatic growth of natural gas supply in the United States has created abundant and affordable natural gas reserves that make LNG a competitively priced fuel alternative to diesel and heavy fuel oil. In addition, natural gas fuel has significant environmental benefits, reducing air pollution and carbon emissions.

“If Eagle LNG receives permission from FERC to begin construction by the first quarter of 2018, we anticipate completion of the project in 2019.”
