Eagle LNG bunker operations get draft environmental approval

Houston-based Eagle LNG Partners will be able to further develop its small-scale LNG bunkering operations after the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted the company their draft environmental impact statement (DEIS).

Eagle LNG said the draft puts it on a clear path to a final investment decision on the Jacksonville Export Project and to continue its success in using small-scale LNG to supply bunkering, as well as providing small-scale LNG cargoes to markets in the Caribbean.

The FERC was released ahead of schedule to Eagle LNG.

“It moves us considerably closer to meeting our goal of expanding clean burning, domestic, and affordable LNG supply for marine bunkering and for small-scale LNG projects in the Caribbean. Once completed, the Jacksonville Export Facility will be the lowest cost source of small-scale LNG available for our marine bunkering and power generation clients,” said Sean Lalani, president of Eagle LNG.

“This project will inject approximately $500m of infrastructure investment plus provide numerous well-paying direct and indirect jobs in Florida. Once completed, the Jacksonville Export Project will contribute to improving air quality in Florida, the east coast and the Caribbean as our clients’ transition to the use of natural gas from heavy fuel oil and diesel,” he added.


In late-July this year, Eagle LNG opened the Maxville LNG Facility to support its marine fuel depot located in the port of Jacksonville. The marine fuel depot offers LNG bunkering to both domestic and international marine trade routes.

Eagle LNG said the Maxville LNG Facility and the marine fuel depot represent the start of the company’s plans to build LNG infrastructure across the nation.
