Background

The NewFortress LNG storage and regasification terminal in Montego Bay, Jamaica (the "Montego Bay Terminal") serves as a supply hub for the north side of Jamaica, providing gas to fuel the 145MW Bogue Power Plant in Montego Bay, Jamaica (the "Bogue Power Plant"). The Montego Bay Terminal commenced commercial operations on October 30, 2016 and stores approximately two million gallons of LNG in seven storage tanks. The Montego Bay Terminal also consists of an ISO loading facility that can transport LNG to all industrial and manufacturing ("small-scale") customers across the island. The small-scale business provides these users with an alternative fuel to support their business operations.[2]
