The project will be interconnected via a natural gas pipeline reaching at least three interstate and intrastate pipelines and collocated with existing pipelines. The lateral will be able to meet the full plant gas supply demand.
The facilities will be designed to deliver approximately 1.9 Bcf/day and will have a maximum allowable operating pressure of 1,200 pounds per square inch gauge. In 2015, TransCameron filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorization under Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act to construct, own and operate the facilities. The project will consist of approximately 24 miles of 42-inch diameter pipeline extending from the proposed LNG terminal to near Grand Chenier, Louisiana (the “East Lateral”).
The targeted in-service date for this pipeline will be mid 2020, subject to the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals and construction of the proposed facilities by that date.
