Permits sought for South Texas LNG export

Pangea LNG (North America) Holdings LLC, Ingleside, Tex., has begun seeking approvals to build an LNG export plant on Corpus Christi Bay in South Texas.

Pangea applied to the US Department of Energy to export as much as 8 million tonnes/year of LNG to all current and future countries with which the US has a Free Trade Agreement and plans to file a similar application for LNG exports to any other country with which the US has no FTA in effect.

The project—South Texas LNG Export—will be in the city of Ingleside on the La Quinta Ship Channel, part of the Port of Corpus Christi. It will sit on a portion of 550 acres that include ½ mile of frontage on the federally maintained deepwater ship channel.

The announcement said Pangea has had the site under option since June. A separate pipeline would connect the LNG plant to extensive interstate and intrastate natural gas transmission pipelines in South Texas.

John Godbold, project director for Pangea LNG, said project feasibility and preliminary design are now under way by CB&I, Houston. If this application process moves forward on schedule, he said, the South Texas LNG plant could be in operation by 2018.
