The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on Monday said it will prepare the environmental impact statement for the proposed Driftwood LNG project. 

FERC added that with the notice of intent to prepare the EIS, opens the scoping process the Commission will use to gather input from the public and interested agencies on the project.

Comments and concerns about the project can be sent o or before November 4, 2016, the Commission said in its notice.

Driftwood LNG, the project proposed by Tellurian Investments, a company formed by former Cheniere CEO Charif Souki and Martin Houston, former COO of BG Group, will be located in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, along the west side of the Calcasieu River.

The facility will have a 26 mtpa liquefaction capacity from five liquefaction trains and will feature three full-containment LNG storage tanks of approximately 250,000-cbm, three berths and loading facilities for LNG ships ranging from 125,000-cbm up to 216,000-cbm.

The project also includes three compressor stations, 15-meter stations, a 3.5-mile 36-inch-diameter pipeline lateral, and three pipeline segments, consisting of about 74 miles of 48-inch-diameter pipeline, 11 miles of 42-inch-diameter pipeline, and 11 miles of 36-inch-diameter pipeline.

Driftwood LNG plans to start construction in the second quarter of 2018 with the first LNG exports expected in the second quarter of 2022.
