New Fortress Energy Inc. announced on Jan. 29 that it received a ruling from U.S. Customs and Border Protection that the LNG produced at the company’s FLNG facility offshore Altamira, Mexico, and transported via non-U.S. qualified vessels would not violate the Jones Act.
The Jones Act requires goods shipped between U.S. ports to be transported on ships built, owned and operated by U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
Following the ruling, New Fortress can sell and deliver LNG produced at its FLNG facility offshore Mexico to U.S. locations, including Puerto Rico—a key downstream market for New Fortress, the company said in its press release.
“We are extremely pleased to receive this ruling for our FLNG facility since it not only supports one of the company’s largest projects but also supports the people of Puerto Rico,” said Wes Edens, chairman and CEO of New Fortress Energy.
