FERC approves Commonwealth LNG pre-filing

FERC approves Commonwealth LNG pre-filing

Commonwealth LNG said that the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the company’s application to start the pre-filing process.

The project being proposed near Cameron, Louisiana will have a liquefaction capacity of 9 million tons per year, the company’s statement reads.

Commonwealth’s president and CEO Paul Varello said the company “has reimagined the engineering and construction process to advance schedule and reduce risk for investors, customers and EPC partners.”

According to the Commonwealth LNG’s initial filing to FERC, the project would consist of eight single mixed refrigerant LNG liquefaction trains and one marine loading berth with the capability to load ships with the capacity ranging from 10,000 cubic meters to 215,000-cbm, and will include six 40,000-cbm capacity, single containment type LNG storage tanks.

The project will include a proposed 4-mile long, 30-inch diameter pipeline interconnected to an existing interstate pipeline, Kinetica Energy Express for purposes of bringing natural gas to the site for liquefaction and export.

Pending a successful environmental review process and receipt of a FERC order, Commonwealth LNG expects to begin construction in 2019 and commercial operation in 2022.
