Driftwood LNG files formal FERC application
2017/04/03
Driftwood LNG LLC and Driftwood Pipeline LLC have completed the pre-filing phase and collectively submitted a formal application with the US FERC.
Tellurian announced that its wholly owned subsidiaries, Driftwood LNG LLC and Driftwood Pipeline LLC have completed the pre-filing phase and collectively submitted a formal application with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate an approximately 26 MMT/Y LNG export facility near Lake Charles, Louisiana and a 96-mile pipeline connecting the facility to interstate pipelines (the Driftwood LNG project).
Tellurian expects to begin construction of the Driftwood LNG project in 2018 and produce first LNG in 2022, with full operations beginning in 2025.
"Throughout the pre-filing phase, the representatives at FERC, the Department of Energy and the US Coast Guard have been well-organized, thorough, and proficient in ensuring that Driftwood LNG is designed and permitted with a priority on safety, reliability, and efficiency. We look forward to continuing to work with FERC and other agencies on a timely approval process and beginning construction in 2018."
The Driftwood LNG project will require approximately 6,400 workers during the construction phase, and will create nearly 400 new permanent jobs when fully operational. Tellurian expects that the project’s costs will be approximately $13 - $16 billion for the Driftwood LNG export facility and expects to make a final investment decision to begin construction following regulatory approval in mid-2018.
