Venture Global LNG announced that its subsidiaries, Venture Global Plaquemines LNG, LLC, and Venture Global Gator Express, LLC, have completed the preliminary review process with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). They have now submitted the formal application requesting FERC’s authorization to site, construct and operate the Plaquemines LNG export terminal and the Gator Express pipeline system.
Plans for the 20.0 MTPA Plaquemines LNG facility call for it to be built on a 632-acre site in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Approximately 30 miles south of New Orleans, Louisiana, the export facility would include over 7,000 feet of Mississippi River frontage with three LNG loading docks.
In a joint statement, Co-CEOs Bob Pender and Mike Sabel said, “Submitting our formal application is a significant milestone in the development of our second low cost LNG export terminal. With the support of the Plaquemines Port and the Plaquemines Council, this large, attractive site on the Mississippi River is convenient and safely accessible to our international LNG customers.”
