GCLP gets FERC approval to build Calhoun LNG project

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 24 -- Gulf Coast LNG Partners LP (GCLP), Houston, said the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved the siting, construction, and operation of the Calhoun LNG facility at Port Lavaca-Point Comfort, Tex.

The approval follows the agency's issuance last month of the final environmental impact statement for the Calhoun project (OGJ Online, Aug. 14, 2007).

Slated for full operation in 2009-10, the project consists of an LNG terminal with two 160,000 cu m storage tanks and 1 bcfd of gas vaporization and liquid separation capacity. It also includes the proposed 27-mile, 36-in. Point Comfort pipeline, which will extend from the terminal and connect with nine major pipelines, including five interstate and four intrastate pipeline systems serving Texas and the Midwest, the Northeast, and the Southeast. The Point Comfort pipeline is designed to transport 1 bcfd.
