Excelerate gets FERC okay for Aguirre offshore GasPort project

Excelerate Energy LP, The Woodlands, Tex., has been granted authorization by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, to site, construct, and operate the proposed Aguirre Offshore GasPort Project offshore Puerto Rico (OGJ Online, Apr. 9, 2014).

The order confirms the final environmental impact statement that resulted in a finding of no significant environmental impact. As part of the order, the project will comply with all the environmental conditions outlined by FERC.

The proposed project will be a floating LNG terminal that will consist of a floating storage and regasification unit, minimal infrastructure to moor the vessel, and a subsea pipeline to deliver the gas onshore.

The terminal, off Puerto Rico’s southern coast near the town of Salinas, would provide fuel to the Aguirre central complex and underpin the conversion of power generation from imported oil to natural gas.
