Lake Charles LNG, a joint project by the Hague-based giant Shell and Texas-based Energy Transfer, sought a permit to extend construction start deadline to November 1, 2019. 

The request was filed on February 8, with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), the company said in its monthly filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The second construction extension request is currently undergoing a 30 day public notice period before final approval, the filing reads.

The proposed Lake Charles LNG project in Louisiana will include the construction of three liquefaction trains and will use the existing LNG storage and marine berthing facilities owned by Energy Transfer.

The US Department of Energy has authorized the facility to export up to 15 million metric tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

Energy Transfer will own and finance the proposed new liquefaction facility while Shell will oversee the engineering, design and construction management, as well as operate the facility once complete.
