The JAX LNG facility located in Jacksonville, Florida, is expanding its capacity by tripling liquefaction to 360,000 gallons a day and doubling LNG storage to four million gallons.
The expansion is expected to be placed in service by early 2022 and will support a new long-term LNG supply agreement with a major maritime company for its dual-fueled ships.
JAX LNG began operations in 2018 and is a joint venture between Pivotal LNG, and NorthStar Midstream. Global trends toward cleaner energy and new international maritime emissions regulations are driving demand for LNG. Following completion of the JAX LNG expansion, Pivotal’s network of LNG assets will reach a production capacity of over 470,000 gallons per day and a storage capacity of approximately nine million gallons at its three facilities in Alabama, Florida, and Pennsylvania
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to meet our customers’ LNG needs and the growing LNG demands in the eastern US,” said Tim Delay, vice-president of Pivotal LNG. “The expansion at JAX LNG with our partner NorthStar further demonstrates our commitment to investing in the future of clean energy.”
For the storage expansion, JAX LNG is working with subsidiaries of Matrix Service Company, a leading contractor to the energy and industrial markets and leader in small- to mid-size LNG liquefaction and storage terminals. Matrix completed the roof lift of the new two million gallon storage tank this past December, fulfilling a major construction milestone in the project. For more information visit: www.pivotallng.com
