DOE Grants American LNG Marketing Non-FTA Export Authority; Affiliate to Supply Jamaica Plant

The U.S. Department of Energy has authorized American LNG Marketing LLC to export up to 60,000 metric tons of domestically-produced LNG per year (approximately 3.02 Bcf/year, 0.008 Bcf/day) from its proposed “micro-LNG facility” at the Hialeah Rail Yard near Medley, Fla. to nations without a Free Trade Agreement with the United States.  The LNG will be loaded at the Hialeah Facility into approved ISO containers (truck or rail mounted), then transported to container ships or roll-on/roll-off ocean-going carriers for export from the Port of Miami or other ports in Florida.  American LNG intends to sell the LNG for use as a transportation fuel by both railroads and motor vehicles in the continental United States, and for export to Caribbean and Central America nations for use in electric generation facilities converted from fuel oil.  American LNG expects commercial operation of the Hialeah Facility to commence in August 2015.

Separately, Jamaica’s energy company, Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS), announced that it has signed an agreement with American LNG Marketing affiliate New Fortress Energy for LNG supplies for JPS’s 120-megawatt power plant in Western Jamaica, at Bogue, Montego Bay, which is being converted to run on gas instead of Automotive Diesel Oil.
