Excelerate Liquefaction Solutions (ELS), a subsidiary of Excelerate Energy, has filed an application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate two floating liquefaction, storage and offloading units (FLSO) and related facilities to be located in and around the Port of Port Port Lavaca-Point Comfort, Texas.
Each proposed FLSO will have a liquefied natural gas (LNG) peak production capacity of up to 5 million tpa, for a total peak production capacity of up to 10 million tpa.
Natural gas pipeline
In addition, ELS has filed to construct a 29.5 mile, 42 inch diameter natural gas pipeline, with associated compressor units and interconnection facilities required to transport natural gas from interconnections with existing pipeline systems to the LNG terminal for processing, liquefaction and export.
Excelerate said it plans to build the LNG project in two phases, with completion of the LNG terminal and pipeline expected in Q4 2018.
“Excelerate respectfully requests that the commission issue a final order authorizing the construction and operation of both phases of the project no later than January 2015 to allow Excelerate sufficient time to complete construction activities in a timely manner and to coordinate the commissioning date for the first liquefaction facilities at the LNG Terminal,” the company requested.
