Shell drops plans for Gulf Landing LNG terminal

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 2 -- Shell US Gas & Power LLC has decided to drop plans for its proposed gravity-based Gulf Landing LNG receiving and regasification terminal off Louisiana.

"Shell has determined that the development of LNG regasification facilities currently under construction or planned in the Gulf Coast region can meet regional LNG requirements," Shell said in an Apr. 1 statement to OGJ. "For this reason, Shell has discontinued its plans to develop the Gulf Landing LNG terminal project," the company said.

Shell had gained approval of the US Maritime Administration for its Gulf Landing LNG terminal in the Gulf of Mexico (OGJ, Aug. 15, 2005, Newsletter).

The proposed Gulf Landing facility would have had capacity to deliver 1 bcfd of natural gas to the US interstate pipeline network (OGJ Online, Nov. 14, 2003). Plans called for a gravity-based structure in 55 ft of water 38 miles off Louisiana on West Cameron Block 213.
