NFE seals long-term LNG supply deal to Caribbean
New Fortress Energy (NFE), the owner of LNG facilities in Florida and in Jamaica and projects in Puerto Rico and the US northeast, said it signed a long-term LNG supply agreement for eight cargoes a year for 10 years through January 2030. In addition to its 100,000 gallons per day liquefaction plant in Miami, NFE operates a floating LNG terminal in Montego Bay, Jamaica, along with a fuel-handling facility in Puerto Rico. Its Puerto Rican subsidiary NFEnergía has entered a 5-year gas supply contract and committed to convert two out of six units at the San Juan combined-cycle power plant (CCGT). The Miami facility began operations in April 2016 and enables the company to produce LNG for export in intermodal ISO containers to the Caribbean and to small-scale customers in southern Florida. The company is also looking at developing a Pennsylvania LNG distribution facility.
