Eagle LNG said it has entered into an LNG-to-power deal with a private residential resort on the Barbuda island in the eastern Caribbean.
The LNG supplier owned by private US investment firm the Energy & Minerals Group entered into a long-term deal with Discovery Land Company’s Barbuda Ocean Club.
The Coco Point neighborhood represents the initial phase of development for Barbuda Ocean Club.
By transitioning to U.S. natural gas for power generation, Barbuda Ocean Club is committing to low-carbon technology while also reducing local air emissions on the island of Barbuda, Eagle LNG said in a statement.
The club will also save millions of dollars in fuel relative to existing petroleum-based power generation.
Transitioning to natural gas driven generation also enables Barbuda Ocean Club to work with Eagle LNG to introduce further low carbon solutions including renewable generation to enable sustainable growth of the development in Barbuda, the statement said.
Eagle LNG said it would provide significant on-island storage and re-gasification assuring natural gas for extended periods should weather inhibit deliveries.
Since early 2018, the firm has loaded hundreds of ISO and trailers loads from their Maxville LNG facility in Florida for Crowley Maritime and other clients.
