Port Arthur LNG LLC (PALNG), an affiliate of Sempra LNG, is planning to undertake the construction of a liquefaction and export terminal in Texas, the US.

The project involves the construction of a natural gas liquefaction and export terminal. It will include the construction of two 5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) liquefaction trains, each with its own feed gas pre-treatment facilities.

The project will include the construction of natural gas liquids (NGL) and refrigerant storage area, marine facilities for vessel berthing and loading, NGL and a refrigerant truck loading/unloading facility, a construction dock and two 160,000m3 LNG storage tanks, and the installation of combustion turbine generators for self-generation of electrical power.

The project will be developed on build, own and operate basis.

In 2014, project development, preliminary engineering and design activities commenced.

The proposed project will require permits from the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Railroad Commission, and the Texas Department of Transportation, as well as consultations and assessments from the United States Coast Guard, NOAA Fisheries, Texas Historical Commission, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and building permits from Jefferson Country and the City of Port Arthur in Texas.

On March 20, 2015, PALNG filed a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) application with the U.S Department of Energy (USDOE) and initiated pre-filing review with FERC.

On June 3, 2015, Sempra executed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with Woodside Petroleum.

In June 2015, FERC has issued a notice of its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS).

In August 2015, the project obtained approval from the U.S. Department of Energy to export up to 10 mtpa of domestically produced LNG to all current and future Free Trade Agreement countries.

On February 2016, Sempra LNG & Midstream and Woodside Petroleum signed a project development agreement

In July 2016, FERC has released an update on its review of Port Arthur LNG’s proposal to construct liquefaction, LNG export terminal and interconnected pipeline facilities at Port Arthur, Texas. FERC is conducting its pre-filing environmental review process for the project and will provide comments to Port Arthur LNG.

Following the FERC review, Sempra Energy and Woodside plan to file their application for the Port Arthur LNG project in September 2016.

In December 2016, PALNG filed applications with FERC seeking authorization to site, construct and operate the development.

In the second quarter of 2017, feasibility studies were completed.

PALNG signed a nonbinding memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Korea Gas Corp. (KOGAS).

PALNG is awaiting for planning approvals. Construction activities are scheduled to complete by the third quarter of 2022.Scope
