Work Begins to Clear Site for NEPA Landlocked LNG Export Plant

Work begins to clear site for NEPA LNG plant (credit: Rocket-Courier)

Although we’ve recently reported several stories about the CEO of New Fortress Energy (see New Fortress Energy Founder/CEO Big-time Democrat Donor) and the company’s plan to build a new dock along the Delaware River to export LNG (see DRBC Approves New Fortress LNG/NGL Shipping Dock on Dela. River), we’ve not heard much about construction of the LNG plant itself, located in northeastern Pennsylvania. We have an update.

Riverkeeper Tries to Bully DRBC to Reverse LNG Dock Decision

Speaking of New Fortress Energy and their planned northeast Pennsylvania LNG liquefaction facility (see today’s story, Work Begins to Clear Site for NEPA Landlocked LNG Export Plant), in addition to chilling natural gas into LNG, you also need a way to load it onto ships and move it to other markets. New Fortress plans to build a $96 million, 1,600-foot-long pier on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River at the former DuPont dynamite factory site to dock and load two ships at a time.

New Fortress Energy Founder/CEO Big-time Democrat Donor

Wes Edens

The bloom is off the rose for us with regard to New Fortress Energy and their plans to build several LNG export facilities in northeastern Pennsylvania (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA), and an LNG export shipping facility along the banks of the Delaware River (see DRBC Approves New Fortress LNG/NGL Shipping Dock on Dela. River). We’ve just discovered New Fortress co-founder and co-CEO (and billionaire) Wed Edens is a big supporter of the Democrat Party–a party that wants to eliminate the business he’s in!

DRBC Approves New Fortress LNG/NGL Shipping Dock on Dela. River

Yesterday, over the shrill objections of THE Delaware Riverkeeper, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) approved a plan put forth by New Fortress Energy to build a $96 million 1,600-foot-long pier on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River at the former DuPoint dynamite factory site. The purpose of the pier? To dock and load two ships at a time–loading them with either LNG (liquefied natural gas) and/or NGLs (natural gas liquids, like propane, butane and ethane).

New Fortress Energy NJ LNG Export Site to Store/Export NGLs Too

A few weeks ago MDN brought you the news that THE Delaware Riverkeeper had finally (months after everyone else knew) woke up to the fact that New Fortress Energy is planning to build an LNG loading facility on the banks of the Delaware River, on the New Jersey side, near Philadelphia (see Riverkeeper Sounds Alarm re New LNG Export Facility on Dela. River). The Philadelphia Inquirer just got around to covering Riverkeeper’s mock outrage about the facility, but then dug deeper and discovered what is for us new information: New Fortress plans to ship not only LNG out of that facility, but NGLs too.

PA Marcellus Gas Going to Angola? New Fortress Inks LNG Deal

New Fortress Energy is expanding into the LNG space like gangbusters. We brought you a story about New Fortress’ billionaire co-founder just yesterday (see The Billionaire Behind New Fortress LNG Export Facility in NEPA). New Fortress is building at least two LNG export plants in land-locked northeastern Pennsylvania (see New Fortress Energy Building Second PA LNG Export Facility), with plans to build “five to ten” such plants over the next five years. New Fortress plans to export the LNG to places like Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and now…Angola, in West Africa.

The Billionaire Behind New Fortress LNG Export Facility in NEPA

Wes Edens

New Fortress Energy is building an LNG liquefying plant in northeastern Pennsylvania and will truck (eventually rail) the LNG to a port located on the Delaware River along the New Jersey shoreline for export to Puerto Rico and other destinations (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). We didn’t know much about New Fortress–until now. Bloomberg recently published an article profiling Wes Edens, the billionaire co-founder of New Fortress.

Riverkeeper Sounds Alarm re New LNG Export Facility on Dela. River

Maya van Rossum, who fancies herself as THE Delaware Riverkeeper, has her knickers in a twist. She’s just woken up to the fact that New Fortress Energy, which is building an LNG liquefying plant in northeastern Pennsylvania (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA), will truck the LNG to a port located on the Delaware River (without her permission), and load it on to ships for export to Puerto Rico.

Will Puerto Rico’s Clean Energy Law Affect Marcellus LNG Imports?

Does one government hand know what the other is doing in Puerto Rico? More to the point, is there a brain instructing either hand what to do? That’s the question we had as we read the legislature of PR has just passed an idiotic law requiring all electricity generation on the island to come from so-called renewables by 2050.

Marcellus LNG Exports to Puerto Rico Up & Running by August?!

click for larger version

New Fortress Energy is building an $800 million LNG export plant in rural northeastern Pennsylvania (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). The plant will send the LNG to the Philly area via truck (eventually rail) and then it onto ships somewhere along the Delaware River. The LNG (some of it) will then get shipped all the way to Puerto Rico where it will be used to power electric generating plants.

Where Will New Fortress Energy’s Marcellus LNG Port be Located?

We’ve been tracking the story of a coming $800 million LNG export plant that will be built in rural northeastern Pennsylvania (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). Two days ago we shared the news that some of the Marcellus molecules from the plant will go to Puerto Rico to power electric plants (see PA Marcellus Gas to Power Electric Plant in…Puerto Rico?!). But between northeast PA and Puerto Rico, somewhere, somehow the LNG must get loaded onto a ship. Where will that happen? We think we know.

We’ve been tracking the story of a coming $800 million LNG export plant that will be built in rural northeastern Pennsylvania (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). We recently shared the news that some of the Marcellus molecules from the plant will go to Puerto Rico (see Wyalusing, PA LNG Export Plant Making Progress). We now know where and for what purpose.

Bradford County Conducts Housing Survey to Prepare for LNG Plant

We’ve been tracking a story since November about a new, smallish (but very important) LNG export plant coming to Bradford County, PA, to Wyalusing (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). In order to build the $800 million facility, a LOT of workers, and housing, will be needed.

New Fortress Energy Building Second PA LNG Export Facility

Earlier this month MDN brought you the exciting news that New Fortress Energy (NFE) is planning to build an LNG (liquefied natural gas) liquefaction plant in Wyalusing (Bradford County), PA in order to export Marcellus gas (see Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA). The $800 million plant will supercool and liquefy locally extracted Marcellus Shale gas and ship it first by truck, eventually by rail, to “customers in the U.S. as well as abroad.” NFE recently filed a Securities and Exchange Commission document called an S-1. In that filing, we learn some dynamite news: NFE is working on a *second* Pennsylvania LNG facility! Not only that, but they have plans to build another 5-10 such facilities over the next five years–although we don’t know if all of those will be in the Marcellus/Utica. Something else we learned in the S-1 is how NFE plans to export the LNG they produce in Wyalusing to other countries.

Big News! Marcellus LNG Export Plant Coming to Landlocked NEPA

We have some exciting news to share. A company called New Fortress Energy is planning to build an LNG (liquefied natural gas) liquefaction plant in Wyalusing (Bradford County), PA. The $800 million (!) plant will supercool and liquefy locally extracted Marcellus Shale gas and ship it first by truck, eventually by rail, to “customers in the U.S. as well as abroad.” Meaning exports. How cool is that? It seems that LNG liquefaction plants no longer have to be located along a shoreline to engage in exports. Which company will provide the gas to liquefy and export? MDN has the exclusive answer, and yes, you need to be an MDN paying subscriber to find out…
