Excelerate Energy Files Formal Application With FERC For The Aguirre Offshore GasPort LNG Import Facility In Puerto Rico

The filing represents a major milestone in the permitting process and signifies a step closer to receiving approval to build and operate a floating offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification facility off the southern coast of Puerto Rico.

The Aguirre Offshore GasPort® is a proposed LNG import facility located approximately four miles offshore the southern coast of Puerto Rico, near the town of Salinas. The facility will provide fuel to the Aguirre Central Complex and will convert power generation from high-cost, high-emissions imported oil to cost-effective, cleaner-burning natural gas. The Central Aguirre Power Complex will convert 900 MW of existing power generation to be dual-fueled, capable of using No. 2 diesel and/or natural gas as its primary fuel.

The companies anticipate FERC will issue the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in the third quarter 2013 and a final EIS early 2014. As part of the process, public hearings will be held so interested parties and the communities may participate in the process. Pending approval from FERC, the facility is expected to be in-service in early 2015. Prior to the filing, Excelerate has held numerous presentations for communities and interested parties in the Aguirre area.
