FERC Gives Delfin Another Year to Build Louisiana Floating LNG Project

U.S. energy regulators granted Delfin LNG a second one-year extension until September 2021, to complete its proposed floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) export facility off the coast of Louisiana. 

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in September 2017 authorized Delfin to build its project by September 2019.

The company, in June 2019, asked FERC for a 30-month extension, but the agency only gave it one more year, until September 2020 to finish the project.

Since Delfin still has not started building the facility, it asked FERC in June for a second one-year extension, which the agency approved on Wednesday.

Officials at Delfin were not immediately available for comment.

Delfin’s project seeks to use existing offshore pipelines to supply gas to up to four vessels that could produce up to 13 mtpa of LNG or 1.7 Bcf/d (48 MMcm/d) of natural gas.
