Under the terms of the long-term application approval, Eagle LNG will be able to export 0.01 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of domestically produced LNG in ISO containers loaded at its soon to be completed Maxville liquefaction facility, near Jacksonville.
Eagle LNG Partners, part of the Ferus group of companies, is working to deliver an LNG bunker fuelling facility near the Port of Jacksonville, Florida, that will serve Crowley Maritime’s two new Commitment class, dual-fuelled ConRo vessels that will operate on trades between the US mainland and Puerto Rico.
The El Coqui was launched earlier this year and sister ship Taino is slated for delivery in 2018.
To support the refuelling requirements of the vessels and also to meet anticipated export and domestic energy demand, Eagle LNG is to build an LNG receiving and liquefaction facility at Jacksonville, which will have a processing capacity of 1.5 million gallons of LNG per day. This facility is slated for commissioning in late 2019.
The Maxville facility will have an initial capacity of 87,000 gallons, rising to 200,000 gallons. It also features a one million gallon storage capacity and an LNG truck loading system.
The facility is on track to begin operation later this year. Eagle Maxville is looking to export to markets in the Caribbean Basin and elsewhere in the region.
Finally, Eagle LNG is also constructing a fuel depot at the JAXPORT Talleyrand Marine Terminal on the St John’s River, which will have a 500,000 gallon storage facility for LNG bunkers.
