Eagle LNG Partners has submitted an application with the US Department of Energy (DOE) requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization under Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act to engage in exports of natural gas in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The application seeks authorization to export up to 49.8 Bcf, or ~1.0 million tons per annum (mtpa), of LNG per year to both free trade agreement (FTA) and non-free trade agreement (non - FTA) countries.
The authorization is for Eagle LNG Partners’ proposed FERC-jurisdictional LNG export facility in Jacksonville, Florida, and requests authorization from the DOE to export LNG on its own behalf and as an agent for other organizations.
Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG, says, “Natural gas from the United States will decrease electricity costs and result in lower economic and environmental costs for the Caribbean region, which is part of our intended market.” Lalani, adds, “Eagle is working to provide dependable and continuous power solutions to the region. Natural gas ensures a reliable and affordable fuel for electricity generation.”
Eagle LNG Partners focuses on utilizing modular small-scale natural gas liquefaction technology to deliver value to clients in markets where larger scale liquefaction projects are not feasible. As previously announced, the company is in the process of submitting its application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) for authorization to site, to construct, and to operate the proposed LNG export facility in Jacksonville, Florida, which is considerably smaller than other LNG export projects currently being proposed to FERC.
