Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville LLC; Application for Long-Term, Multi-Contract Authorization To Export Liquefied Natural Gas to Non-Free Trade Agreement Nations
Document Number: 2016-15694
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-07-01
Agency: Department of Energy
The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) of the Department of Energy (DOE) gives notice of receipt of an application (Application), filed on January 27, 2016, and supplemented on February 3, March 18, and June 1, 2016, by Eagle LNG Partners Jacksonville LLC (Eagle LNG), requesting long-term, multi-contract authorization to export domestically produced liquefied natural gas (LNG) transported on both ocean-going LNG carriers, and approved ISO IMO7/TVAC-ASME LNG containers to be loaded onto container vessels, to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (FTA) requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas, and with which trade is not prohibited by U.S. law or policy (non-FTA countries).\1\ Eagle LNG seeks authorization to export the LNG in a volume equivalent to approximately 49.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas per year (Bcf/yr) (0.14 Bcf per day). Eagle LNG proposes to export the LNG from Eagle LNG's planned production, storage, and export facility to be constructed at a site on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida \2\ (Facility or Jacksonville Project). Natural gas will be delivered to the facility by the local gas distribution utility, Peoples Gas, a TECO Energy Company. The Facility will export LNG via vessel to foreign markets and/or distribution to specialized domestic markets. The Facility will incorporate a truck load-out facility. Through this load-out facility, Eagle LNG will have the capability of filling ISO containers. Those containers may be transported by truck to domestic markets or to locations within the Port of Jacksonville from which ISO containers may be loaded onto container ships for delivery to both domestic and export markets. According to Eagle LNG, when fully constructed and operational, the Jacksonville Project will have the capacity to produce the natural gas equivalent of 0.14 Bcf/d of LNG per day from three trains and include a storage tank with a capacity of 12 million gallons of LNG. The Jacksonville Project has been under development since 2013 and is currently in the pre-filing phase with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the siting and construction of the Project that is expected to have its first export in the fourth quarter of 2018. Eagle LNG requests authorization for a 20-year term to commence on the earlier of the date of first export or five years from the issuance of a final order granting export authorization. Eagle LNG seeks to export this LNG on its own behalf and as agent for other entities who hold title to the LNG at the time of export. The Application was filed under section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA), 15 U.S.C. 717b). Additional details can be found in Eagle LNG's Application, posted on the DOE/FE Web site at: http://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2016/02/f29/16-15-LNG.pdf.

Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for Integrated Light-Emitting Diode Lamps
Document Number: 2016-14481
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-07-01
Agency: Department of Energy
This final rule adopts a test procedure for integrated light- emitting diode (LED) lamps (hereafter referred to as LED lamps) to support the implementation of labeling provisions by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as well as the ongoing general service lamps rulemaking, which includes LED lamps. The final rule adopts test procedures for determining the lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, correlated color temperature (CCT), color rendering index (CRI), power factor, lifetime, and standby mode power for LED lamps. The final rule also adopts a definition for time to failure to support the definition of lifetime. This final rule incorporates by reference four industry standards, including two recently published industry standards that describe a process for taking lumen maintenance measurements and projecting those measurements for use in the lifetime test method.
