The United States Department of Energy has authorized Delfin LNG to export up to 1.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from the proposed floating LNG terminal offshore Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. 

Delfin LNG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fairwood Peninsula Energy, plans to build a deepwater port in the Gulf of Mexico to liquefy domestically sourced natural gas for export.

Due to its offshore location, the environmental review of Delfin was led by the Maritime Administration (MARAD) and the U.S. Coast Guard, DoE said in its statement.

Delfin LNG has been authorized to export the LNG volumes for a period of 20 years to any country with which the United States does not have a free trade agreement (non-FTA).

Earlier this year, MARAD approved the project would consist of four semi-permanently moored floating LNG vessels, each capable of storing 210,000 cubic meters of LNG and a production capacity of 3.3 mtpa of the chilled fuel each.

Combined, the four floating LNG vessels will have a production capacity of 13.3 million tons of liquefied natural gas per year.

MARADpreviously informed that the port operations are expected to commence no earlier than July 2019 with the commissioning of the first FLNGV. The port is expected to be fully operational by July 2022.
