The LNG export facility and terminal in Jacksonville, Florida, will have a production capacity of approximately 1.65 million gal./d of LNG, with 12 million gal. of storage, plus marine and truck loading capabilities located on-site.
Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG, said: “The FERC authorisation for Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG export facility has been many years and countless hours in the making. As one of only a handful of greenfield LNG project proponents to obtain their FERC order, and the only project devoted to provisioning small scale LNG projects in the Caribbean basin, Eagle LNG is one large step closer to delivering clean-burning, affordable, domestically produced US natural gas.”
“Numerous independent studies have shown that sourcing LNG for power generation allows Caribbean island nations the ability to substantially reduce power costs and simultaneously reduce CO2 emissions by 30 – 40% as compared to fuel oil and coal. Eagle LNG acknowledges that this project would not have been possible without the continued support of the Jacksonville community and key stakeholders regionally and in North Florida.”
Eagle LNG claims that the construction of its Jacksonville LNG export facility will be approximately US$500 million, with a continuing positive economic and employment impact for the southeast US, State of Florida and the North Florida region.
Lalani added: “Exports in small volumes from our existing Maxville LNG facility are already providing low cost, domestically produced US natural gas as an early, stable fuel source for the Caribbean. The proposed Jacksonville LNG export facility will not only drive and create economic growth in Florida and the US, it is crucial for the expansion of new US/Caribbean LNG trade opportunities.”
