Proposed Louisiana LNG Terminal Seeks DOE Export OK

G2 LNG LLC has filed with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export 14 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG) (672 Bcf per year) from a proposed terminal along the Calcasieu Ship Channel in Cameron Parish, LA.

In separate filings, G2 is seeking both free trade agreement (FTA) country authorization and non-FTA authorization [15-44-LNG,15-45-LNG]. G2, incorporated in Delaware and based in Baton Rouge, LA, seeks authorization to export on its behalf and as an agent for third parties.

The company said it is in talks with several gas producers regarding long-term gas supply agreements and with several parties for long-term export contracts. No further details were given. The terminal's capacity would be 14 mtpa. The volumes specified in each application are not additive.

"...[T]he network of pipelines that can deliver natural gas to the G2 LNG site in Cameron Parish can be supplied from almost the entire United States east of the Rockies," the company said. "This extensive natural gas pipeline transportation system will provide G2 LNG with access to vast quantities of both conventional gas and unconventional shale gas produced not only throughout Louisiana and Texas, but from regions far beyond if that should prove desirable."

Several would-be LNG exporters have chosen to site their proposed projects along the Calcasieu Ship Channel. Magnolia LNG, a project of Australia-based LNG Ltd., is among them (see Daily GPIMarch 18). SCT&E LNG LLC was recently granted authority to export 584 Bcf per year from a proposed terminal to be sited on Monkey Island in the Calcasieu Ship Channel (see Daily GPIDec. 16, 2014). Venture Global LNG LLC has proposed a $4.25 billion terminal on the channel (see Daily GPIDec. 10, 2014).
