USCG approves JAX LNG’s waterfront liquefaction facility
JAX LNG, a Pivotal LNG and NorthStar Midstream joint venture, received the letter of acceptance from the United States Coast Guard for its waterfront LNG facility and bunkering operations.
The JV has been allowed to conduct ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations with TOTE Maritime’s Marlin Class ships deploying the LNG barge, Clean Jacksonville, with operations expected to start in 2018.
In August 2015, JAX LNG and its partner TOTE Maritime received their first letter of acceptance from the Coast Guard establishing the landside LNG bunkering facility in the Port of Jacksonville.
Expected to be operational by end of 2017, JAX LNG’s facility at Dames Point near Jacksonville will be outfitted with a marine dock and truck loading capability.
Operated by Pivotal LNG, the facility’s initial daily liquefaction capacity will be 120,000 gallons of LNG per day and it will have 2 million gallons of storage capacity.
