Eagle LNG has requested authorisation to site, construct, and operate a LNG terminal and export facility on the north bank of the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has prepared a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Jacksonville Project proposed by Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville (Eagle LNG).
The project would include the following facilities:
- three LNG trains, each with a nominal capacity of 0.33 million (metric) tonnes per annum of LNG for export, resulting in a total nominal capacity of 1.0 million (metric) tonnes per annum;
- one LNG storage tank with a net capacity of 45,000 cubic meters;
- marine facilities with a concrete access trestle and loading platform, and two liquid loading arms capable of docking and mooring a range of LNG vessels with an LNG cargo capacity of up to 45,000 cubic meters;
- LNG truck loading facilities with a dual bay capable of loading 260 to 520 LNG trucks per year;
- a boil-off gas compression system;
- on-site refrigerant storage;
- ground flare and cold vent systems; and
- utilities and support facilities (e.g., administration, control, and workshop buildings; roads and parking areas; power and communications; water, air, septic, and stormwater systems).
Natural gas would be delivered to the Jacksonville Project site via a 120-foot-long non-jurisdictional pipeline that would be constructed, owned, and operated by Peoples Gas (a subsidiary of TECO Energy, Inc.).
The draft EIS comment period closes on January 7, 2019. The commissioners will take into consideration the FERC environmental staff’s recommendations when they make a decision on the project.
