The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Friday vacated the Section 3 authorization and certificate authorization for Port Arthur LNG LP to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal near Port Arthur, TX, and for Port Arthur Pipeline LP to construct two takeaway natural gas pipelines from the outlet of the proposed terminal. The projects were to be built in two phases. “Neither Port Arthur LNG nor Port Arthur Pipeline has begun Phase I construction of the authorized facilities, nor requested further extension of the [in-service] deadline, which expired two months ago. Therefore, we are vacating their authorizations,” the order said [CP05-83, CP05-84]. Under Phase I, the terminal would have had a sendout capacity of 1.5 Bcf/d. The capacity would have doubled in Phase II (see Daily GPI, Nov. 21, 2006).
