FERC Authorizes Lake Charles LNG Export Terminal

Yesterday, FERC issued an order granting Lake Charles LNG Export Company, LLC and Lake Charles LNG Company, LLC (together, Lake Charles LNG) authorization to construct liquefaction and LNG export terminal facilities adjacent to Lake Charles LNG’s existing LNG import terminal located in Calcasieu Parish, La.  The order also granted Lake Charles LNG’s request to convert its facilities and operations from Natural Gas Act (NGA) section 7 jurisdiction to NGA section 3 jurisdiction.  The liquefaction facilities will include three liquefaction trains with a design production capacity of 16.45 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG (5.48 mtpa each) and will be constructed and placed into service in phases.  The first train is expected to be placed into service in the second quarter of 2019, with the second and third trains placed into service in the fourth quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020, respectively.
