Eagle LNG Files FERC Application for Jacksonville LNG Project
Eagle LNG Partners announced it has filed its formal application with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorization to construct and operate natural gas liquefaction and export facilities located at a site on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. The proposed Project consists of three liquefaction trains, and at full build-out, will be capable of producing up to 1.65 million gallons of LNG per day.
The produced LNG will be delivered to local and regional markets, including marine bunkering and high horsepower applications for domestic consumption, as well as transported to markets in the Caribbean and Latin America for power generation.
“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,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG. “In addition, natural gas fuel has significant environmental benefits, reducing air pollution and carbon emissions.”
Eagle LNG says this project supports their interest to have a cleaner energy solution that provides a direct and reliable supply of LNG from a liquefaction source at predictable cost. LNG from this project also complements greater penetration of renewables in the region leading to an environmentally sustainable future.
