Advancing its global LNG project, SCT&E LNG has employed Proes, an international marine and environmental consultancy contractor, to develop its marine studies. These studies will support the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) pre-filing process.
Proes will utilise its experience to complete the marine infrastructure studies for SCT&E LNG’s LNG project on Monkey Island, Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US. Initially, the company will develop a waterway suitability assessment to be submitted to the US Coast Guard.
Alongside with the SCT&E LNG environmental team, Proces will also advance the FERC pre-filing process.
Greg Michaels, Chairman and CEO of SCT&E LNG, said: “This is an important next step for our project as we have started preparing for the FERC pre-filing process. The FERC’s review process is, among other things, designed to address siting of marine facilities and fulfil its responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act.”
Luis del Pozo, CEO of Proes, commented: “Proes is honoured to be a part of this important US infrastructure project, and we look forward to working with the SCT&E LNG team. We have evaluated and worked on LNG project sites all over the world, and the project location on Monkey Island has unique characteristics that make it one of the strongest sites for the development of a large-scale LNG facility.”
Greg Michaels added: “Over the next 45 days, we are scheduled to select our natural gas liquefaction technology provider and engineering contractor. These decisions support our current schedule of starting the FERC pre-filing process in the second half of 2015.”
