CH-IV International’s President, Jeffrey Beale, has announced that the company will manage the development of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) application, including detailed engineering and design, for Freeport LNG’s Train 4.
Freeport LNG is adding a fourth natural gas liquefaction unit to the three trains currently under construction at the site on Quintana Island, Texas. This expansion will allow for the export of an additional 5 million tpy of LNG, increasing the total export capability of all four trains to over 20 million tpy of LNG.
In May 2015, Freeport LNG submitted a pre-filing request to the FERC to commence an environmental review of Train 4. The company expects to file the formal application with FERC in November this year.
Commenting on winning the FEED contract, Beale stated: “CH-IV is very proud of the long-standing relationship we have had with the Freeport LNG team as they have moved from world-class LNG import operation to soon to become a world-class LNG export facility. We are honoured to be supporting Freeport’s further expansion with the fourth train.”
Mark Mallet, Freeport LNG’s Senior VP – Operations & Projects, added: “The regulatory process can be a most exciting, time-consuming critical-path element of any project development. To keep this process under control, Freeport LNG has relied on CH-IV’s LNG expertise and experience in the area of engineering and FERC filing support since 2009.”
