Fourchon LNG starts Ferc process

Energy World project would include facilities to fuel LNG-powered vessels

Energy World has requested permission to begin the environmental pre-filing review for its proposed Fourchon liquefied natural gas export facility, kicking off the regulatory process for the Louisiana project.

The small-scale facility, located in Port Fourchon, would include up to 10 liquefaction trains and would be completed in two phases, according to a letter filed with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The completed facility would have a capacity of 5 million tonnes per annum.

While the main goal of the project is to liquefy US natural gas for export, a small amount of product will also be available to power LNG-fueled vessels.

The project would be Hong Kong-based Energy World's first US operation. The company also has LNG, natural gas and power operations in Australia and Asia.
