Houston-based Eagle LNG Partners LLC has selected Matrix Service Inc for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of a US$500M small-scale LNG export facility in Jacksonville, Florida
Eagle LNG’s Jacksonville LNG export facility will also utilise Chart Industries’ IPSMR technology and liquefaction equipment technology. The facility will have a production capacity of approximately 6.25M litres of LNG per day with 45.4M litres of storage plus a marine terminal and truck-loading capabilities.
“Eagle LNG is experiencing a growing demand for LNG to serve small-scale export markets, while domestic demand for fuel-grade LNG continues to increase," said Eagle LNG chief executive Dick Brown. "We continue to build out LNG infrastructure across the country to meet these needs. Partnering with Matrix Service and Chart Industries provides service from concept through completion."
With a capacity of 1 mta of LNG, the Jacksonville LNG Export Facility will serve the Caribbean, loading LNG onto small, oceangoing vessels for export to countries currently using heavy fuel oil or diesel for power generation.
Eagle LNG will continue to serve domestic marine LNG fuelling and export LNG in ISO containers for Caribbean markets from Eagle LNG’s Maxville LNG Facility, also located in Jacksonville.
Besides the Jacksonville LNG Export Facility, Eagle LNG’s investment in Jacksonville includes its Maxville LNG Facility and the Talleyrand LNG Bunker Station on JAXPORT at the Port of Jacksonville, which provides LNG for Crowley Maritime’s two dual-fuel container roro vessels that operate to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Eagle LNG received both US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission authorisation and US Department of Energy LNG export approvals for the Jacksonville LNG Export Facility in late 2019.
