The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued an order granting Golden Pass Products LLC and Golden Pass Pipeline LLC authorisation to construct LNG export facilities and compression and looping facilities, respectively.

This follows two applications made by the parties on 7 July 2014. Golden Pass Products filed an application to site, construct and operate facilities for the export of LNG, located at the existing LNG import terminal owned and operated by Golden Pass LNG Terminal LLC in the vicinity of Sabine Pass, Texas, US.

Golden Pass Pipeline, meanwhile, filed an application for a certificate of public convenience and necessity to build and operate compression and looping facilities in Texas and Louisiana. This will make the existing pipeline facilities bi-directional, allowing it to transport up to 2.5 billion ft3/d of domestically sourced gas to the export terminal project.

The export terminal project will include three 5.2 million tpy liquefaction trains, capable of producing 15.6 million tpy of LNG overall. Golden Pass Products also proposes to build and operate feed gas treatment facilities, comprising a mercury removal system, amine system, and heavy hydrocarbon removal system, as well as a 200 – 250 MW self-generation power plant to power the liquefaction trains and other terminal operations. The company proposes to make use of the existing import terminal’s storage tanks, berths and related facilities, although certain modifications would have to be made.
