Eagle LNG Partners announced yesterday it has filed a formal application with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for authorization to build and operate natural gas liquefaction and export facilities in Jacksonville, Florida. The proposed project consists of three liquefaction trains. At full build-out the facilities will be capable of producing up to 1.65 million gallons of LNG per day, or approximately 1 million tonnes per annum.
The LNG will be transported to markets in the Caribbean and Latin America for power generation. The LNG will also be delivered to local and regional markets, including marine bunkering and high horsepower applications for domestic consumption. “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,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG.
Eagle LNG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ferus Natural Gas Fuels LP and privately-held by The Energy & Minerals Group.
