The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has authorized Houston-based Freeport LNG Development LP to site, construct, and operate facilities to liquefy and export domestic natural gas from its existing liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal located near Freeport, Texas.
The Freeport Liquefaction Project includes the construction and operation of a liquefaction plant with three trains, each with a capacity of 4.4 million metric tons per year, for total liquefaction capacity of 1.8 billion cubic feet per day. The project includes pretreatment plant facilities that will interconnect with several pipelines and facilities to allow bi-directional flow of gas through the existing Freeport Pipeline.
In addition, FERC authorized Freeport LNG’s Phase II Modification Project that would revamp the previously authorized but unconstructed Phase II Project. The Phase II Modification Project comprises three major components: reorientation of the Phase II dock, modification of the transfer facilities, and modification of access roads at the terminal.
The two projects would be constructed together at Freeport’s existing Quintana Island terminal.
The U.S. Department of Energy has conditionally approved Freeport LNG’s export of gas to both Free Trade Agreement and non-Free Trade Agreement countries.
