FERC approves Sabine Pass LNG terminal

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 22 -- The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved construction of the 2.6 bcfd LNG regasification terminal proposed in Cameron Parish, La., by Sabine Pass LNG LP, a unit of Cheniere Energy Inc., Houston.

FERC also approved construction of a 26-mile pipeline proposed by Cheniere Sabine Pass Pipeline Co. connecting the LNG terminal to an existing gas pipeline.

Sabine Pass LNG has said construction of the terminal might begin in first quarter 2005 (OGJ, Sept. 20, 2004, Newsletter).

The project is the third new US LNG terminal to receive FERC approval. The commission approved the Cameron LNG LLC project by Sempra Energy LNG Corp. near Hackberry, La., in September 2003, and the Freeport LNG Development LP terminal on Quintana Island, near Freeport, Tex., in June 2004.
