US DOE Grants FTA LNG Export Permit to Delfin

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has approved Delfin LNG’s application to export, on its own behalf and as agent for third parties, 657.5 Bcf/year of LNG over a 20-year period to nations with a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the United States.

Delfin plans to develop, own, and operate a floating liquefaction facility in WC 167 of the Gulf of Mexico. Delfin said that the facility will qualify as a “deepwater port” under the Deepwater Port Act (DWPA), and thus will require Delfin to obtain a license from MARAD, working in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard.

Liquefaction at the planned deepwater port will utilize floating liquefaction and storage vessels (FLNGV) to be moored near an existing platform located in WC 167, approximately 30 miles offshore of Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

Delfin said that the platform is the terminus and metering point of the existing Enbridge Offshore Pipelines (UTOS) natural gas pipeline system, and is connected to the shore via an existing 42-inch diameter, 30-mile long gas pipeline.
