Eagle LNG has announced the opening of its Maxville LNG Facility. The plant which has been operating since early 2018 has a production capacity of 200,000 LNG gallons-per-day with a 1 million-gallon storage tank.
Maxville is built to supply Eagle LNG’s Marine Fuel Depot – Talleyrand located on the Port of Jacksonville’s (JAXPORT) Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
Eagle LNG will fuel Crowley Maritimes’ two new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships for U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico trade from its Talleyrand marine fuel depot in addition to serving growing domestic and Caribbean needs for clean-burning, economical LNG.
Integral to supporting maritime fuelling, Eagle LNG’s marine fuel depot is a shore-side facility offering 500,000 gallons of LNG bunkering capability, while occupying a small two-acre footprint which allows bunkering at Crowley’s berth where their ships are homeported. The fuel depot is the first of its kind world-wide. As a permanent marine infrastructure, it delivers a long-term LNG bunkering solution at JAXPORT for both domestic and international marine trade routes.
Eagle LNG is also focused on completing its larger LNG export plant, also to be constructed in Jacksonville, on the St. Johns River north of JAXPORT. The new plant will have capacity to produce 1.5 million LNG gallons-per-day with a 12 million-gallon storage tank, a marine jetty and road tanker loading bay. It will supply LNG for power generation to the Caribbean Islands plus domestic fuel and power markets.
The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is expected to approve the larger export facility soon, with first LNG production anticipated from the facility in 2020.
