San Diego, CA-based Sempra Energy’s LNG subsidiaries filed applications with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to site, construct and operate the proposed Port Arthur LNG natural gas liquefaction facility along the Sabine-Neches Waterway in Southeast Texas.
The application includes construction of two natural gas liquefaction trains capable of producing 698 Bcf of natural gas per year; three LNG storage tanks; natural gas liquids and refrigerant storage facilities; feed gas pre-treatment facilities; two berths; and associated marine and loading facilities. A separate application was filed with FERC seeking authorization to construct natural gas pipelines to deliver natural gas to the project.
“We are pleased to continue advancing the Port Arthur LNG project,” said Octavio Simoes, president of Sempra LNG & Midstream. “Our experience in developing, building and operating energy infrastructure will help us deliver a cost-competitive project to the global LNG market.”
Sempra LNG & Midstream and Woodside Energy (USA), Inc. signed a project development agreement in February that provides a framework for the sharing of costs related to the development, technical design, permitting and marketing of the proposed liquefaction project.
