Driftwood LNG LLC, a subsidiary of Tellurian LNG LLC, has filed an application with the US Department of Energy (DOE) for long-term, multi-contract authorisation to export LNG.

The application covers exports of up to 1496.5 billion ft3/yr of natural gas (approximately 26 million tpy of LNG) from domestic resources for a term of 30 years to countries that hold a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the US and for a term of 20 years for non-FTA countries.

Driftwood LNG plans to export the LNG from the proposed liquefaction facility on the west side of the Calcasieu River near Carlyss, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, US. The Facility will consist of five LNG plants, each comprised of one gas pre-treatment unit and four liquefaction units. Each liquefaction unit will consist of a refrigeration compressor driven by aeroderivative gas turbines. The liquefaction technology will be Chart Industries' proprietary Integrated Pre-cooled Single Mixed Refrigerant process. LNG will be stored onsite in three LNG storage tanks, each with a capacity of approximately 235 000 m3. The marine loading facility will be located along the Calcasieu River and will consist of three berths for LNG ships with a cargo capacity ranging from 125,000 m3 to 216 000 m3.
