USA: AES Requests Permit to Export LNG to FTA Nations
Advanced Energy Solutions (AES) has filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy to export up to 8 Bcf per year of domestically sourced LNG to any country located within Central America, South America and/or the Caribbean, which has, or in the future develops the capacity to import LNG via approved 150 containers transported on ocean-going carriers, and with which the United States currently has, or in the future will have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA).
At present time, the facility that will process the LNG for AES is not yet constructed and is planned to be operational by the end of 2014, the company said.
AES has liquefaction, storage, and truck loading capacity with BP at the Floridian Natural Gas Storage Co., LNG facilities.
Floridian, as approved by FERC, is approved for location in Martin County, Florida and has full containment storage tank capacity up to an amount of 8 billion cubic feet with liquefaction eapacity of 25 MMcf/d from each of four side-by-side liquefaction trains for a total of 100 MMcf/d of natural gas liquefaction from the overall plant, the company added.
