A pre-file review of the proposed Plaquemines Parish LNG Export Facility has been requested by developer Pointe LNG. The company has asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to initiate the review.
The facility is to be situated in Louisiana on the east bank of the Mississippi River approximately two miles south of Pointe a la Hache, Louisiana.
It will have an initial export capacity of 6 million tons per annum (Mtpa), and will be designed using three 2 Mtpa modular trains provided by CHART’s IPSMR®+ LNG Liquefaction technology. In 2014, a significant portion of the site was previously reviewed by FERC in connection with a previously proposed LNG Export Terminal Project.
Assuming that various contingencies are satisfied, including Pointe LNG’s receipt of financing and all necessary permits and approvals, such that it reaches a final investment decision, construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021 with initial operations expected in the first quarter of 2025.
