FERC will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal project of CE FLNG LLC, an affiliate of Cambridge Energy Holding LLC, which plans to construct and operate two floating natural gas liquefaction, storage and offloading units on the Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish, LA, as well as an associated 37-mile natural gas pipeline (see Daily GPIApril 19). The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission opened a scoping period for the EIS that is scheduled to end Jan. 6 [PF13-11-000]. CE FLNG plans to moor two self-propelled liquefaction, storage and offloading vessels at the terminal that would each be about 1,100 feet long and 180 feet wide, rising about 80 feet above the waterline. The vessels would be capable of producing up to 8 million tonnes per annum of LNG and storing 250,000 cubic meters of LNG. The project has been approved for free trade agreement (FTA) country exports; approval to export to non-FTA countries is pending at the U.S. Department of Energy.
