Interstate LNG “Pipeline”
• Inland Sites
– Back up fuel for power plants
– Local distribution for truck fuel
– Peak shaving reinjection into interstate and intrastate pipelines
• Florida Ports – East and West Coasts
Bunker barge for marine fuel
ISO container loading for small scale export
Small bulk barges for FTA, NFTA, and US Territories
Local distribution for truck fuel
Reinjection into interstate and intrastate pipelines
Note: The concepts discussed on the following slides about Satellite tanks and proposed tariff
structures have not been filed with or approved by FERC
Potential Satellite Tank Sites
FGS Interstate LNG “Pipeline”
Tariff Structure
• Structure tariff similar to Interstate Pipeline
– Rate Schedule in existing FGS tariff providing Receipt and Delivery Point
• Receipt Point – FGS Indiantown
– Receive natural gas for liquefaction and storage
• Delivery Points
– FGS Indiantown
• Revaporization or truck loading
– Specific satellite tank locations
• Revaporization, truck / ISO tank loading, or barge loading
• Similar to a pipeline path, customer would own capacity and “path”
between receipt point and specific delivery points
– Customer would provide own transport between receipt and delivery
– FGS would provide “path” from receipt point to delivery point including
delivery into and receipt from intermediate non-jurisdictional transport
FGS Interstate LNG “Pipeline”
Advantages to Customer
• Eliminates regulatory uncertainty associated with facilities and
• FERC tariff governs from receipt of gas to ultimate delivery to
• Allows customer access to any market through one FERC
jurisdictional facility
– Interstate natural gas storage
– Transport to and revaporization into interstate pipelines
– FTA & NFTA Exports subject to customers appropriate export
license (FGS is not an export facility)
– Motor fuel
– Bunker fuel
– Intrastate use
Projected Schedule
• Planned Construction start – Late Summer 2014 (pending final FERC approvals)
• Projected in service Summer 2016
• Facilities to serve the immediate market for liquid
– 1 – 25,000 MMBtu/day (300,000 gal/day) liquefier (negotiating PA’s for
2nd liquefier)
– 2 bay Truck Loading facility capable of loading 300,000 gal/day firm and
up to 480,000 gal/day on an interruptible basis
– 1 bcf storage capacity (12,000,000 gallons LNG)
– 100,000 MMBtu/day vaporizer for pipeline sendout
• Discussion on-going to add barge loading capabilities at ports for
export and bunkering operations
– Projected in service 3rd Qtr 2016
• Will start process for adding rail car loading as demand identified
Regulatory Environment
• A lot of misinformation and unknowns
• FERC vs. Non-FERC?
• Section 3 vs. Section 7c?
• PHMSA and 49 CFR 193 and NFPA 59A Standards?
• Hinshaw exemption? Hawaii Gas Ruling?
• Very similar to the large scale LNG changes that resulted in the
“Hackberry” rule for large scale projects
– Took over 1 ½ years
– Multiple FERC hearings in Washington
• Multiple filings on jurisdiction with no response to date
