Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP have executed joint venture agreements to continue developing an LPG export facility in the Lake Charles, LA area.
The proposed Moss Lake LPG Terminal would be located on the Calcasieu River and serve tankers transporting LPG to Asian, Latin American and European markets.
The terminal is being designed to store 900,000 bbls of fully refrigerated propane and butane with a load-rate of 25,000 bpd. It would facilitate the export of a portion of the propane and butane components of the NGLs transported on the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline and separated at the Moss Lake fractionation plant, both of which are being developed by a joint venture of Williams and Boardwalk.
Williams and Boardwalk officials say they cannot give assurances that this project will be completed, in whole or in part. If all conditions are satisfied and the parties elect to construct the facilities described above, the project could be placed into service in late 2015.
