Eagle LNG Partners has achieved a major milestone by submitting drafts of Resource Reports 1 – 12 to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
With this submission, the project is closer to receiving the necessary permits and approvals to commence construction and operation of its planned 0.55 million tpy LNG facility in Jacksonville, Florida, US.
“This submission significantly advances our position in the FERC process,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG. “We are pleased that the project continues to gain momentum while simultaneously receiving tremendous support from the City of Jacksonville and North Florida region. We continue to work with interested clients and stakeholders to move toward start-up and commissioning in 2018.”
The Jacksonville facility will service local domestic applications and nearby small-scale export markets.
“Eagle LNG is bullish about the potential for natural gas to displace heavy fuel oil and diesel. This is another important project deliverable that Eagle LNG has achieved on schedule,” Brown added.
FERC and relevant government agencies will now review the draft reports and provide feedback to Eagle LNG.
