Pangea LNG (North America) Holdings LLC (Pangea) and Statoil North America Inc. (Statoil) are planning to construct the South Texas LNG Export Facility project in Texas, the US.
The project involves the construction of an 8 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on a 222.57ha of land. The facility will be based on floating liquefaction technology.
The export facility will be developed in two phases with each phase will be capable of producing 4MTPA LNG with storing capacity of 250,000 cubic meters and it is also capable of processing 398.5 billion cubic feet per annum or 1.09 billion cubic feet per day of LNG.
The project includes the construction of a natural gas treatment plant, liquefaction and gas processing units, storage tanks, vacuum chambers and distillation units, the installation of compressor units and the laying of pipelines.
The project will have an associated pipeline to connect the LNG liquefaction facility to the extensive natural gas pipeline network in South Texas.
Statoil has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pangea for purchasing 50% of the produced natural gas.
On January 18, 2013, Pangea initiated the process of seeking approvals from the US Department of Energy (DoE) to build the LNG export facility.
Pangea has filed an application with DoE seeking authority to export up to 8MTPA of LNG to all current and future countries with which the US has a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and intends to quickly file a similar application for LNG exports to any country with which the US does not have an FTA in effect.
On January 30, 2013, DoE has granted long-term, multi-contract authorization to export LNG to FTA nations from domestic gas fields for a 25-year term commencing on the date of its first export. That amount is equal to 1.09Bcf/day of natural gas.
The project engineering feasibility studies have been undertaken by Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB&I) (for vessel and floating liquefaction facility), Hatch Mott MacDonald (for pipeline) and Moffatt and Nichol Engineers (for marine infrastructure).
Pangea and Statoil are in the process of obtaining approvals to export LNG to non-free trade agreements (FTA) nations from Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Pangea and Statoil is waiting for final investment decision (FID) and are in the process of obtaining necessary approvals. Construction activities are expected to be completed by 2022.Scope
