DoE approves Eagle LNG’s export application
The United States Department of Energy recently approved Eagle LNG Partners’ application to export liquefied natural gas from its facility in Jacksonville, Florida.
According to the DoE filing, Eagle LNG has been authorized to export up to 49.8 billion cubic feet per year (about 1 million tons per annum) of LNG for a period of 20 years to free trade agreement nations.
Eagle LNG states that the LNG will be loaded for export onto ocean-going LNG carrier vessels, as well as in ISO LNG containers loaded onto container vessels.
According to current plans, the company wants to build one LNG storage tank with a capacity of 12 million gallons, a marine load-out facility, a dock that can accommodate both small to mid-size LNG vessels with capacities of between 5,000 and 30,000 cbm and bunkering barges, and a truck load-out facility.
The facility is expected to load 40 to 100 vessels each year, Eagle LNG said, adding that it expects to start exports in the fourth quarter of 2018 with all three liquefaction trains expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2020.
Eagle LNG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eagle LNG Partners, a Delaware limited liability company. According to Eagle LNG, another member of Eagle LNG Partners is Ferus Natural Gas Fuels, a Delaware partnership headquartered in Houston, Texas.
