A new LNG export facility, with a production capacity of approximately 1.65 million LNG-gallons per day, has been announced for Jacksonville, Florida.

Eagle LNG has partnered with Matrix Service Company for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction of the facility which could provide up to 26,000 jobs in North East Florida.

Along with a production capacity of approximately 1.65 million LNG-gallons per day, the facility will also boast 12 million LNG-gallons of storage, plus a marine terminal and truck loading capabilities.

The facility, which will require an investment of $500m based on final design, will utilise Chart Industries’ IPSMR® technology and liquefaction equipment technology.

“Eagle LNG is experiencing a growing demand for LNG to serve small-scale export markets,” said Dick Brown, CEO of Eagle LNG.

“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.”

The Jacksonville LNG export facility will serve as the Caribbean’s most cost-effective, proximal LNG source, loading LNG onto small, ocean-going vessels for export to countries currently using heavy fuel oil or diesel for power generation.

“We are extremely proud to have been selected by Eagle LNG to provide turnkey solutions for this project, which will expand their ability to provide clean, low-cost, domestically produced natural gas to both domestic and global markets,” said John Hewitt, Matrix Service Company’s CEO.

“We are pleased to partner with Matrix Service on this important project for Eagle LNG, bringing out global expertise in the design and manufacture of highly engineered cryogenic equipment as well as our patented IPSMR® process technology,” said Jill Evanko, Chart Industries’ CEO.
