The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has vacated authorizations for Calhoun LNG and Point Comfort Pipeline to site, construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal and associated facilities at the port of Port Lavaca-Point Comfort in Calhoun County, TX. The Commission approved the project in September 2007 (see Daily GPI, Sept. 21, 2007). The companies, which had planned to build a 1 Bcf/d LNG terminal and a 27.1-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline from the terminal to pipeline interconnects southwest of Edna, TX, filed a request to vacate the authorizations in December. Calhoun LNG is a subsidiary of Houston-based Gulf Coast LNG Partners LP.
