Antigua and Barbuda is running its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, which could transform the country's energy sector.

The Antigua Observer newspaper reported that four new 1,000-cubic-meter LNG storage tanks arrived in the country recently, and each tank will be transported to the Crabbs power plant separately.

Melford Nicholas, the Minister Responsible for Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA), welcomed the arrival of the equipment and stated that it will bring the country closer to energy diversification and carbon emission reduction.

Nicholas said that a significant part of this initiative is the future economic benefits, as many new cruise ships are being built with LNG engines.

Eagle LNG’s Business Development Director Kevin Frantz pointed out that the tanks have enough storage capacity to run a power plant for ten days.
