Cambridge Energy FLNG (CE FLNG) has filed an update on the status of its proposed floating LNG export terminal on the Mississippi River, with the FERC.
The self-propelled FLNG terminal will be located on the river near Baptiste Collette Bayou in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The report notes a number of updates including:
- CE FLNG is waiting for a ruling by the US Customs and Border Protection on the lawfulness of the company’s proposed use of purpose-built, non-coastwise-qualified vessels for use as floating storage and liquefaction units to liquefy natural gas.
- CE FLNG has restructured its projects to more closely fit the new Department of Energy processes in order to seek protection from market power as new barriers to entry have been introduced to the US LNG Export Market with regard to the license and permitting process.
- CE FLNG intends to file its final FERC application by May 2015.
- The company anticipates start-up of the floating LNG terminal in Q1 2019.
The FERC docket for the CE FLNG project can be found on eLibrary under Docket No. PF13-11.
