Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (LNG Ltd) has announced that the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has accepted Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline LLC's (KMLP) application pursuant to Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act for the Lake Charles Expansion Project.
Interested parties must formally intervene and/or submit comments on the filing by 1 August 2014.
KMLP's application seeks FERC's authorisation to construct and operate the Lake Charles Expansion Project, which would include the installation of compression and other related facilities on the existing KMLP pipeline, facilitating the full required volumes of natural gas to be transported to the proposed 8 million tpa Magnolia LNG Project, which is located along the Calcasieu River, near Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA.
The FERC approval process for the Lake Charles Expansion Project will run in parallel with FERC's regulatory review of the Magnolia LNG Project. FERC formally accepted the Magnolia LNG application on 15 May 2014.
KMLP is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Inc.
