FERC progressing Eagle LNG project’s environmental analysis
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said it is conducting the environmental analysis of Eagle LNG’s proposed export facility in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida.
The commission received information and shareholder comments and it continues to review the draft resource reports.
It was noted in the update that Eagle LNG intends to file its application by the end of 2016.
Eagle LNG plans to construct and operate the LNG export facility in Jacksonville, consisting of a new liquefaction facility that would receive natural gas transported by a local utility through existing and expanded pipeline facilities located adjacent to the project site.
Eagle LNG would liquefy natural gas, temporarily store the produced LNG, and load LNG into trucks and containers, or onto ocean-going vessels for use in the marine bunkering trade and for export from the United States. The project will have a processing capacity of 1.5 million gallons of LNG per day, with on-site LNG storage of 12 million gallons, according to Eagle LNG.
The LNG facility would include three liquefaction trains, one LNG storage tank, and a marine load-out facility and dock on the St. Johns River that could accommodate small to mid-size LNG vessels and bunkering barges.
