Monkey Island LNG was formerly known as SCT&E LNG, and is constructing a 15.75 million tpy LNG export facility on Monkey Island, Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US. FERC is the siting and construction authority for the facility. AECOM will use its experience to prepare the permitting strategy for the project, and commence the application process with FERC.
Scott Ray, Monkey Island LNG’s President, Engineering and Construction, said: “AECOM's Technical Practice Network and experience with impact assessment and permitting LNG facilities and natural gas pipelines on the Gulf Coast are a significant asset to our project team. We look forward to working with this talented organisation to successfully and efficiently complete the FERC permitting process.”
AECOM previously carried out the Phase 1 environmental study for the Monkey Island site, and will provide support for the project from its offices in Houston, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
Michelle Council, AECOM’s executive sponsor, said: “We are excited to work with Monkey Island LNG on this world scale LNG facility, and we look forward to a successful project.”
The Chairman and CEO of Monkey Island LNG, Greg Michaels, added: “Incorporating AECOM's environmental and LNG expertise with our Monkey Island LNG technical team will instil confidence with key customers and investors in our project. This choice aligns with our corporate commitment to selecting industry-proven technologies and contractors, such as Air Products & Chemicals Inc. and TechnipFMC, to develop this great clean-energy project.”
A final investment decision (FID) is expected to be made in 4Q20. At this point, the project development team plans to commence building the facility. During the construction period, the project will provide thousands of jobs at both a local and state level. Once operations commence, the facility will create hundreds of permanent jobs, and will returns billions of dollars in revenue to the US.
