Lake Charles LNG Export Project files FERC application

The Lake Charles LNG's Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) filing represents the culmination of significant front-end engineering design (FEED) work and pre-filing consultations with the FERC and other federal, state and local agencies that have been under way since mid-2012.

In August 2013 the U.S. Department of Energy conditionally granted authorization to export up to 2 billion cubic feet per day (or approximately 15 million metric tonnes per annum) of LNG from the existing Trunkline LNG import terminal to non-free trade agreement nations.

The proposed project is being developed to liquefy domestic supplies of natural gas for export to meet growing global demand for LNG. Exporting LNG to world markets is expected to provide economic and employment related benefits for the U.S., including approximately 250 operational positions and several thousand jobs during the proposed project’s construction phase.

The proposed project will include the construction of three liquefaction trains and use the existing LNG storage and marine berthing facilities owned by Trunkline LNG Company, LLC. Energy Transfer has secured all property rights required for the site of the proposed liquefaction facility.

Energy Transfer will own and finance the proposed facility and BG Group is responsible for the offtake. BG Group will also select the engineering, procurement and construction contractor and manage construction. Upon completion, BG Group will operate the proposed facility under a long-term agreement with Energy Transfer. Trunkline Gas Company, LLC (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Transfer), will provide pipeline transportation services to supply natural gas to the proposed facility.
