FERC has approved Cheniere’s request to utilize an existing contractor yard and three temporary access roads associated with the construction and operation of the Corpus Christi Pipeline.
“Cheniere will utilize an additional 9.6 acres of work area at the Sinton yard for temporary material and equipment staging, and for installation of temporary construction office trailers,” Kandilarya Baraka, Environmental Project Manager with FERC, said. “Three existing access roads, currently being used for the Corpus Christi Terminal, will be utilized for the Corpus Christi Pipeline. These proposed access roads occur within the workspace currently authorized for the Corpus Christi Terminal.”
The Corpus Christi Pipeline is a 23-mile long, 48-inch diameter natural gas pipeline to be located in San Patricio County, Texas. The pipeline will commence near Sinton, Texas and will run southeasterly along a corridor that will allow for the interconnection points with interstate and intrastate natural gas transmission pipelines in South Texas, including Tennessee Gas Pipeline, Southcross, Kinder Morgan Tejas Pipeline, Transcontinental Gas Pipeline and Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America. The line will end at the proposed Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC plant near Corpus Christi, Texas.
