Freeport LNG to Amend Waterway Suitability Assessment

In documents filed recently with FERC, Freeport LNG announced its intention to amend its Waterway Suitability Assessment to include Q-Flex vessels.  As designed, Freeport LNG’s facilities could accommodate Q-Max vessels, but Freeport notes that the shipping channel is currently too small to receive such large ships. However, Port Freeport and the Army Corps of Engineers have proposed to widen the ship channel, and Freeport LNG indicates that it expects Q-Max vessels to eventually be able to call at the terminal. Freeport LNG’s filing is available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP03-75.
