Annova LNG files for construction permit with FERC
Annova LNG filed an application with FERC earlier in the week for authorization to site, construct, and operate new liquefaction and export facilities located on the Brownsville Ship Channel in Cameron County, Texas.
The company, an indirect subsidiary of Exelon Corporation, is seeking the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to grant the application by March 30, 2018.
The mid-scale Annova LNG export project, that consists of LNG facilities and associated marine transfer facilities, will include six liquefaction trains, each with a nameplate capacity of 1.0 mtpa, for an aggregate nameplate capacity of 6 mtpa and a maximum output at optimal operating conditions of 6.95 mtpa.
The LNG facilities will be designed to receive 0.9 billion cubic feet per day of feed gas via an intrastate natural gas pipeline. The facilities willi include two 160,000 cbm storage tanks.
Annova said in its filing it intends to begin site preparation in the second quarter of 2018 and to begin construction of the project in the third quarter of 2018.
The project will be commissioned and operated in three stages of two trains each, with commissioning for the first stage is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2021, for the second stage in the third quarter of 2021, and for the third stage in the fourth quarter of 2021.
