LNG at the Bahamas

AES Corporation is planning to construct an LNG receiving & regasification terminal in the Bahamas and a natural gas pipeline connecting the facility to the U.S. via Florida.
AES Oceans Express LLC (Coral Gables, Fla.), a wholly owned subsidiary of AES Corporation, will construct a 24″ diameter natural gas pipeline with a total length 92.8-miles and an initial capacity of 800 mmcf/d of natural gas. The pipeline will make landfall at the Dania Beach Boulevard traffic circle in Broward County and continue 6.3-miles inland where it will interconnect with Florida Gas Transmission’s mainline at Florida Power & Light’s Fort Lauderdale Power Plant.
A second subsidiary of AES Corporation, AES Ocean LNG, Ltd (Youngstown, New Jersey.), will construct the LNG receiving terminal with a capacity of 3-4 million tons per year in Ocean Cay, Bahamas and the first 40.4-miles of the non-jurisdictional off-shore pipeline from the facility to the exclusive economic zone boundary between the U.S. and the Bahamas. The last 52.4-miles of the pipeline will be constructed by AES Oceans Express LLC. In addition, a 1,600 megawatt combined cycle power generation facility could be a part of the installations to be constructed in the Bahamas.
