Jacksonville LNG bunkering terminal secures avails

30 Jul 2018

Eagle LNG Partners (Eagle LNG)’s Maxville LNG Facility is now officially opened for business, it says.

The plant, built to support Eagle LNG’s Marine Fuel Depot located on the Port of Jacksonville’s (JAXPORT) Talleyrand Marine Terminal, has a production capacity of 200,000 liquefied natural gas (LNG) gallons-per-day and a 1 million-gallon storage tank.

Eagle LNG’s marine fuel depot is a shore-side facility offering 500,000 gallons of LNG bunkering capability, and is designed to deliver a long-term LNG bunkering solution at JAXPORT for both domestic and international marine trade routes.

The LNG bunkering facility will provide marine fuel to Crowley Maritimes’ two new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships for their U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico trade.

“Eagle LNG is investing millions of dollars creating small-scale LNG infrastructure to supply LNG as a cleaner-burning, more economical fuel alternative for marine bunkering and for export to the Caribbean,” said Sean Lalani, President of Eagle LNG. 

“It represents the start of Eagle LNG’s plans to build LNG infrastructure across the nation.”

Crowley Maritime Corp., meanwhile, has taken delivery of El Coquí, among the world's first combination container/roll on-roll off (ConRo) ships powered by LNG from shipbuilder VT Halter Marine Inc.
