Commonwealth LNG has announced the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has accepted its application to initiate the Pre-Filing Process for a LNG export facility near Cameron, Louisiana. The project will have the capacity to liquefy and ship 9 million tonnes per annum of LNG according to Commonwealth LNG.
Commonwealth’s President and CEO Paul Varello said, “By employing innovative yet proven methods, our team has reimagined the engineering and construction process to advance schedule and reduce risk for investors, customers and EPC partners. This creative process also improves safety and decreases overall capital costs.”
Pending a successful environmental review process and receipt of a FERC Order, Commonwealth LNG expects to begin construction in 2019 and commercial operation in 2022.
