The LNG export facility will be located near Lake Charles, Louisiana, US, and have an output of approximately 26 million tpy. The pipeline, meanwhile, will be approximately 96 miles long and connect the facility to interstate pipelines. Tellurian is expecting to commence construction of the Driftwood LNG project in 2018, and produce first LNG in 2022, with full operations to follow in 2025.
The President and CEO of Tellurian, Meg Gentle, said: “Throughout the pre-filing phase, the representatives at FERC, the Department of Energy and the US Coast Guard have been well-organised, thorough, and proficient in ensuring that Driftwood LNG is designed and permitted with a priority on safety, reliability, and efficiency. We look forward to continuing to work with FERC and other agencies on a timely approval process and beginning construction in 2018."
During the construction phase, the project will require approximately 6400 workers. When fully operational, it will create nearly 400 permanent jobs. Tellurian expects that engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) costs will be approximately US$13 billion – US$16 billion for the export facility, and expects to make a final investment decision (FID) to commence construction following regulatory approval in mid-2018.
