Downeast LNG has filed Draft Resource Report No. 1 with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission as part of the pre-filing environmental review for the company’s proposed LNG import/export terminal.
This Resource Report 1 provides a general project description of the Downeast LNG export project proposed by Downeast Liquefaction, to be located in Robbinston, Maine at the site of the Downeast LNG import project that is pending before the FERC, the company said.
The LNG export project would convert the Downeast LNG import project into a bidirectional import-export LNG terminal and pipeline, capable of producing up to 3 million metric tonnes per annum of liquefied natural gas and 100 million standard cubic feet per day of regasified LNG.
The export project is being proposed due to the increased domestic natural gas production, specifically drilling productivity gains that have enabled rapid growth in supplies from unconventional, and particularly shale, gas-bearing formations in the United States, according to the report.
