Freeport LNG given final Clean Air Act approval by FERC

Freeport LNG given final Clean Air Act approval by FERC

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Clean Air Act, the FERC staff has prepared a final General Conformity Determination (GCD) for the Freeport LNG Liquefaction and Phase II modification projects.

The GCD aims to ensure that the projects do not violate the Texas State Implementation Plan and address the potential air quality impacts associated with the construction and operation of liquefied natural gas facilities proposed by Freeport LNG.

“The FERC staff concludes that the projects will achieve conformity with the Texas State Implementation Plan and has received concurrence from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality,” FERC said in a notice.

Freeport LNG’s development is composed of multiple components in Brazoria County, Texas. The main liquefaction plant, located on Quintana Island, will be three propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant trains, each with a capacity of 4.4 million metric tons per year of LNG for export, which equates to a total liquefaction capacity of approximately 1.8 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.
