Liberty Natural Gas Submits Offshore New York LNG Import Facility Application to MARAD/Coast Guard

A notice was published in the Federal Register that the U.S. Maritime Administration and U.S. Coast Guard received an application by Liberty Natural Gas, LLC proposing to construct and operate an LNG deepwater port, known as Port Ambrose, located in the New York Bight, approximately 17 nautical miles southeast of Jones Beach, N.Y. Port Ambrose would consist of two Submerged Turret Loading (STL) Buoys where imported LNG would be received from LNG regasification vessels, vaporized on site and delivered through the STL buoys via pipeline to an interconnection with Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line’s Lower New York Bay Lateral in New York State waters. Deliveries through Port Ambrose would be focused during peak demand winter and summer months.
