FERC Releases Final Environmental Impact Statement for Lake Charles Liquefaction Project

Today, FERC released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for Trunkline Gas and affiliates’ proposed Lake Charles Liquefaction and LNG export terminal project in Calcasieu Parish, La.  The liquefaction facilities would have a design production capacity of 16.45 million metric tons of LNG per year, which would provide an LNG export capacity equivalent to about 2 Bcf/day.  The FEIS determined that construction and operation of the project would result in adverse environmental impacts but most impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels.  The FEIS includes 96 mitigation measures to further reduce the environmental impacts which are recommended to be attached as conditions authorizing the project.
