Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company and its affiliates submitted an activities report to FERC regarding the August pre-filing environmental review operations for the proposed LNG export terminal at Pascagoula, Mississippi.
Report states that the biological/wetlands and cultural surveys as well as geotechnical investigations were completed during the month.
The Gulf LNG Liquefaction project will be integrated with existing terminal infrastructure. The project will include the installation of liquefaction and export facilities at the terminal with a total capacity of 10 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). These facilities will allow the terminal to liquefy domestic natural gas delivered by pipeline, store the LNG in the terminal’s existing LNG storage tanks, and load it into LNG vessels via the terminal’s existing marine jetty. The terminal will retain its current capability to receive, store, regasify, and deliver natural gas into the interstate pipeline system as originally constructed, thereby making the Gulf LNG terminal bi-directional.
