By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 11
-- Golden Pass LNG Terminal LLC, Houston, announced it has received approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to place Phase 2 of the Sabine Pass, Tex., terminal’s capacity into service.

The operator completed Phase 2 commissioning and performance tests in late April, having previously commissioned Phase 1 in early March (OGJ Online, Mar. 17, 2011). Also placed into service was the 69-mile Golden Pass takeaway pipeline to move gas from the terminal to downstream interstate markets.

Combined Phase 1 and 2 operations will enable nominal sendout capacity of more than 2 bcfd and regasification capacity of 15.6 million tonnes/year of LNG. The pipeline can move as much as 2.5 bcfd of natural gas.
