Jordan Cove Energy Files for LNG Export Licence, USA

Jordan Cove Energy Files for LNG Export Licence with FERC, USA

Veresen Inc. announced that Jordan Cove Energy Project L.P. has filed an application with the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas export facility on the west coast of the United States within the international Port of Coos Bay, Oregon.

Filing of the FERC application follows more than a year of engineering and design activities, public consultation, and working closely with the FERC to ensure a completed application. Receiving a certificate to allow the construction and operation of the Jordan Cove LNG facility is expected to take approximately one year from the date of filing.

“I am very encouraged by the progress we have made on Jordan Cove over the last several months,” said Don Althoff, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our advanced regulatory position and recent acquisition of all required project development lands has us well-positioned to enter into a commercial off-take arrangement. We continue to evaluate all opportunities with potential capacity holders.”

The proposed Jordan Cove project, which has an initial liquefaction design capacity of 6 million tons per annum, or approximately 1 billion cubic feet per day, would meet growing demand for LNG by providing direct access to natural gas reserves in Western Canada and the U.S. Rockies primarily through existing pipeline and gas gathering networks. Jordan Cove’s location provides a low cost shipping benefit for exporting LNG to energy consuming markets throughout Asia, South America, Hawaii and Alaska.

An application by Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, L.P. to construct a 234-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline will be submitted to FERC in the following weeks.  The Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline will extend from the liquid trading hub of Malin, Oregon to the Jordan Cove terminal and the South Dunes Power Plant facilities (South Dunes). The South Dunes power facility, wholly-owned by Veresen, is a proposed natural gas fueled, combined-cycle power plant with a base-load capacity of 420 MW.  Dedicated to the operation of Jordan Cove, and sited adjacent to the LNG facility, South Dunes is being permitted with the Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council.

Jordan Cove Energy Project L.P. is a subsidiary of Veresen Inc., and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline, L.P. is a limited partnership owned equally by Veresen and a subsidiary of The Williams Companies, Inc.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
