The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a notice approving Annova LNG Brownsville’s request for the initiation of pre-filing environmental review procedures.
Annova LNG and affiliates plans to construct and operate an LNG export terminal on the Brownsville Ship Channel in Cameron County, Texas. The terminal will include six liquefaction trains with a 1.0 mtpa of LNG capacity with a maximum export output of 6.95 mtpa or 0.93 bcf per day.
FERC added in its notice that Annova intends to file an application no later than February 2016.
FERC also selected Tetra Tech as the third-party contractor to assist in preparing the National Environmental Policy Act documentation and urged Annova to finalize the deal with Tetra Tech so the work may begin as soon as possible.
