According to the statement, the FEIS is the result of FERC’s comprehensive process that Eagle LNG began in December 2014. The process involved the completion of a number of environmental, safety and security reviews, with input from both federal and state agencies, as well as various stakeholders.
Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG, said: “Achieving this critical milestone is a significant step forward for Eagle’s Jacksonville LNG export facility as we continue to advance our efforts to supply clean burning, domestic and affordable LNG for marine bunkering and small-scale LNG export to both domestic and international markets.
“We appreciate the continued support we have received from regulators, the Jacksonville and North Florida communities, and local agencies.”
According to the statement, the facility will initially consist of three liquefaction trains. At full build out, it will be capable of producing up to 1.65 milllion gal./d of LNG. This is equivalent to approximately 1 million tpy of production.
Lalani added: “The Jacksonville LNG export facility, with its prime Florida East Coast location, will give us a unique and competitive advantage in helping provide some of the lowest-cost power generation for nearby Caribbean countries. With approximately US$500 million of infrastructure investment, this project will continue to generate numerous well-paying direct and indirect jobs in Florida.”
