FERC issues draft EIS for Lake Charles LNG

FERC issues draft EIS for Lake Charles LNG

The United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said it has prepared a draft environmental impact statement for the Lake Charles liquefaction project.

The project proposed by Lake Charles LNG includes construction of three liquefaction trains, each with a production capacity sufficient to produce 5.48 million metric tons per annum of LNG for export, modifications and upgrades at the existing LNG terminal and about 0.5 mile of 48-inch-diameter feed gas line to supply natural gas to the liquefaction facility from existing gas transmission pipelines together with several other modifications and upgrades to existing facilities, FERC said in its notice.

FERC’s environmental staff concludes that construction and operation of the project would result in adverse environmental impacts, but most impacts would be reduced to less-than-significant levels.

The final date for comments on FERC’s draft EIS is June 1, 2015.
