Sempra LNG, Woodside to assess Port Arthur LNG project

Sempra LNG, Woodside to asses Port Arthur LNG project

Sempra Energy has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding with Woodside to commence discussions and assessments for the potential development of the proposed Port Arthur liquefaction project in Texas.

The non-binding MOU is the initial step for Sempra LNG, a unit of Sempra, and Woodside to explore this opportunity and undertake due diligence for the potential development of the Port Arthur liquefaction project, the company said in a statement.

The proposed Port Arthur liquefaction project would be located at a site previously permitted for an LNG regasification terminal and would be designed to include two natural gas liquefaction trains with a total export capability of approximately 10 million metric tons per annum, or 1.4 billion cubic feet per day, as well as LNG storage tanks and marine facilities for LNG ship berthing and loading.

In March 2015, Sempra LNG’s affiliate, Port Arthur LNG initiated the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission pre-filing review for the proposed natural gas liquefaction facility and filed its permit application with the U.S. Department of Energy for authorization to export LNG produced from the proposed project to all current and future Free Trade Agreement countries.

Sempra LNG said that any development of the project remains contingent upon completing required commercial agreements; acquiring all necessary permits and approvals; securing financing commitments and potential tax incentives; achieving other customary conditions; and making a final investment decision to proceed.
