FERC to provide additional EIS for Magnolia LNG expansion
- Ports & Logistics
U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) for the incremental 0.8 mtpa production capacity of Magnolia LNG.
Perth-based Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (LNGL) received notice of intent (NOI) from FERC that a supplemental EIS would be prepared for the increase in production of company’s unit Magnolia LNG.
FERC’s NOI only pertains to the capacity uplift for Magnolia from 8.0 mtpa to 8.8 mtpa and does not affect Magnolia’s existing FERC order and notice to proceed for its original 8.0 mtpa capacity.
LNGL previously received notice from the United States Department of Energy that Magnolia can expand its export capacity to 8.8 mtpa of LNG to countries that have free trade agreements (FTA) with the United States.
