Gulf LNG Liquefaction Co. LLC and affiliated companies have filed an application with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on June 19, seeking approval to build liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facilities at a terminal near Pascagoula, Miss. The project, estimated to cost $8 billion, would have two liquefaction trains and a total peak capacity of up to 11.5 million tons of LNG per year. It would have an expected send-out rate of 1.5 Bcf/d.
Kinder Morgan entities own 50% of the project, Thunderbird LNG LLC owns 30% and the remaining 20% is held by units of Arc Logistics Partners LP and Lightfoot Capital Partners LP.
The two-phase project, which is in the front-end design work stage, is expected to complete construction by the end of 2021. The applicants requested that FERC issues approval by June 17, 2016.
