The liquefied natural gas project developer, Annova LNG, received the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) permit to construct and operate its mid-sized LNG export facility located in Brownsville, Texas.

The approval was granted following the review and cooperation of federal and state regulatory agencies, including he U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, National Park Service, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration–National Marine Fisheries Service, and Federal Aviation Administration.

Annova LNG also consulted with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Historical Commission throughout the review process, the company said in its statement.

Omar Khayum, CEO of Annova LNG, said, “receipt of the FERC authorization is well-timed to maintain the steady progress we are making toward completing the most sustainable and lowest-carbon LNG export facility in the U.S.”

In October 2018, Annova LNG announced that Black & Veatch and Kiewit invested in the project and were awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract on a joint basis.

The project is a proposed mid-scale facility that will include six liquefaction trains, each with a nameplate capacity of 1 million tonnes per annum, with the maximum output at optimal conditions expected to be at 6.95 mtpa.
