    Excelerate files FERC application for Lavaca Bay LNG project

    Excelerate Energy

    Excelerate Energy has filed its formal application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requesting authorization to construct, own, and operate the first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) export facility in the US.

    “The filing represents a major milestone and further strengthens project momentum as we head toward a final approval,” said Rob Bryngelson, president and CEO of Excelerate Energy. “We continue to make strong progress on all fronts and hope to make a final investment decision within the next 12 months.”

    Pending FERC approval, the facility is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2018. Excelerate Energy has been granted permission to export to free-trade agreement (FTA) nations by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and has filed for non-FTA approval in October 2012. Excelerate is fourth in order on the list of applicants that the DOE is currently processing.

    Sited along the coast south of Point Comfort, Texas, the facility will comprise a permanently moored floating liquefaction storage and offloading (FLSO) unit with 4.4 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of production capacity and 250,000 cubic meters of LNG storage, as well as a fully integrated, onshore gas processing plant. The facility will interconnect to the region’s existing pipeline system to obtain natural gas and liquefy it onboard the unit.

    The project will be designed and permitted with the potential for expansion and the addition of a second FLSO over time for a total production capacity of up to 10 MTPA.
