Commonwealth Projects LLC is progressing its Commonwealth LNG project and moving closer to a final investment decision following the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s formal acceptance of Commonwealth LNG LLC’s filing application.

Commonwealth LNG is an 8.4 million-tonnes/year export terminal project on the US Gulf Coast near Cameron, La. The project involves construction of an LNG plant that will include six gas liquefaction trains and appurtenant facilities. Each train will have a design capacity of 1.4 million tpy.

The project, on the west side of the Calcasieu Ship Channel near the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico, will include six LNG storage tanks (each with a capacity of 40,000 cu m), one marine loading berth (capable of loading LNG carriers up to a capacity of 216,000 cu m), and a 3.04-mile, 30-in. pipeline connecting the LNG facility with existing intrastate and interstate pipelines to supply gas to the project.

The company expects to take FID on the project in fourth-quarter 2020 and begin operations in first-quarter 2024.
