Monkey Island LNG, formerly known as SCT&E LNG, has selected Aecom to coordinate the environmental analysis and engineering services for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission pre-filing review process and application.
The company is planning to develop a 15.75 mtpa liquefied natural gas export facility on Monkey Island in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
Aecom will prepare the permitting strategy for the Monkey Island LNG project and begin the FERC application process, Monkey Island LNG said on Tuesday.
Previously, Aecom completed the Phase 1 environmental study for the Monkey Island LNG project site and will support the project from their Houston, Texas, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana offices.
The Monkey Island LNG facility is expected to reach final investment decision in the fourth quarter of 2020, at which point the project development team plans to begin construction of the facility.
