Sempra Energy has released a statement claiming that its LNG subsidiaries have filed applications with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) seeking authorisation to site, construct and operate the proposed Port Arthur LNG liquefaction facility located along the Sabine-Neches Waterway in Southeast Texas, US.

The application for the proposed project involves the following: two liquefaction trains capable of producing 13.5 million tpy at optimal conditions; three LNG storage tanks; natural gas liquids (NGL) and refrigerant storage; feed gas pretreatment facilities; two berths and associated marine and loading facilities.

Octavio Simoes, President of Sempra LNG & Midstream, said: “We are pleased to continue advancing the Port Arthur LNG project.

"Our experience in developing, building and operating energy infrastructure will help us deliver a cost-competitive project to the global LNG market."

In February 2016, Sempra LNG & Midstream signed a project development agreement with Woodside Energy (USA) Inc., providing a framework for the sharing of costs related to the development, technical design, permitting and marketing of the proposed Port Arthur liquefaction project.

Before a final investment decision (FID) can be made, commercial agreements need to be signed, permits and approvals must be granted, financial commitments must be secured and a number of other conditions must be met.
