Gulf LNG lets FEED contract for LNG terminal

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Apr. 27 -- Gulf LNG Energy LLC, Houston, has let a contract to Technip for front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a 1.5 bcfd LNG import terminal to be built in the Port of Pascagoula, Miss.

The planned terminal will handle 250,000 cu m tankers and will have two 160,000-cu-m full-containment storage tanks.

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved the $450 million terminal, for which construction will begin in 2006 and is expected to be complete in mid-2009.

The Pascagoula site, east of the Henry Hub, has direct access to four major gas pipelines serving the Northeast and three gas pipelines serving Florida and the Southeast. The site is easily accessible from the Bayou Casotte Ship Channel, 42 ft deep and 350 ft wide.
