The final environmental impact statement for Cheniere Energy Inc.‘s Corpus Christi Liquefaction LLC project in Texas and associated pipeline is to be issued Oct. 8, with a deadline of Jan. 6, 2015 for a decision on whether to authorize the project, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said. Corpus Christi Liquefaction would construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export and import terminal on the north shore of Corpus Christi Bay in Nueces and San Patricio counties. The terminal would be capable of liquefying about 2.1 Bcf/d and vaporizing about 400 MMcf/d of LNG. The project would also include three 160,000 cubic-meter LNG storage tanks; two LNG berthing docks; about 23 miles of 48-inch diameter, bi-directional pipeline capable of transporting 2.25 Bcf/d of gas; and two compressor stations. In December Corpus Christi Liquefaction struck an agreement with PT Pertamina (Persero) under which Pertamina would purchase about 0.8 million tonnes per annum of LNG from the terminal (see Daily GPI, Dec. 6, 2013).
