Pointe LNG LLC, founded by the same executives who established Louisiana LNG Energy LLC, asked FERC to initiate a pre-filing process for a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Plaquemines Parish, LA. The Pointe LNG project would be built on the east bank of the Mississippi River on 600 acres of leased property with more than 6,500 feet of river frontage, according to the New Orleans-based company's filing at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The project would include a liquefaction facility, LNG storage, marine loading terminal and 6.6 miles of 36-inch diameter gas supply laterals. Pointe LNG anticipates filing a formal application at FERC by Nov. 2019. Assuming approval by July 2021, construction would begin in early 2022, with the project potentially in service in 2Q2025.
