Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has executed a contract on a piece of property on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Fla., where Clean Energy and the recently announced Eagle LNG Partners consortium will pursue the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel terminal.
The construction of such a facility is notable in that it would be the first LNG terminal on the East Coast designed specifically to supply LNG fuel for heavy-duty trucking and other transportation applications.
Eagle LNG Partners – a partnership among Clean Energy, GE Ventures, GE Energy Financial Services and Ferus Natural Gas Fuels – is eyeing a facility that would be capable of producing about 300,000 gallons of LNG per day. Construction of the Jacksonville plant is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2014 and be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015. It would join existing Clean Energy LNG facilities in California and Texas.
‘The Jacksonville project is a strong first step for Eagle LNG Partners and would put the Eastern seaboard and Southeast region clearly in play for high-horsepower LNG fueling applications,’ says Sanjay Bishnoi, senior director of GE Ventures.
Clean Energy is currently open to discussions with potential customers interested in securing LNG from the facility's remaining capacity. For details, call Greg Roche at (949) 437-1359.
