Reuters is reporting that Annova LNG’s proposed LNG export terminal in Brownsville, Texas, is now closer to receiving federal approval for construction after being issued its draft environmental report.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) concluded in its environmental impact statement (EIS) that the construction and operation of the project would result in some adverse environmental impacts, however the significance of these impacts could be minimised if the company adhered to the recommendations laid out in the draft report.
The Brownsville LNG project includes liquefaction facilities, two LNG storage tanks, a pipeline meter station and marine transfer facilities. Once operational, these facilities will allow for a production capacity of 6 million tpy.
According to Annova, the project’s construction will cost approximately US$3 billion.
