Pivotal requests authorization to sell LNG to Puerto Rico
AGL Resources unit, Pivotal LNG, has requested a one-time authorisation from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to sell approximately 30,000 gallons of LNG via ISO containers for subsequent transportation by truck and waterborne vessel to Puerto Rico.
Pivotal LNG said in the request that one of the company’s customers intends to use the LNG for the purposes of start-up and equipment-testing at a manufacturing plant in Puerto Rico as it converts its fuel supply from diesel to natural gas.
“In order to prevent any disruption of the manufacturing plant’s business and schedule, Pivotal LNG will need to sell LNG for delivery by truck to a U.S. port in ISO containers beginning no later than August 11, 2014,” said the company in a letter sent to FERC.
Pivotal LNG requested a response from FERC by August 7.
