SCT&E LNG picks Proes to develop marine studies
SCT&E LNG said it has hired Proes, a marine and environmental consultancy contractor, to complete the marine infrastructure studies for its LNG project on Monkey Island, Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
As one of its initial tasks, Proes will develop a waterway suitability assessment to submit to the United States Coast Guard. Furthermore, Proes will work with the SCT&E LNG environmental team to advance the FERC pre-filing process, SCT&E LNG said in a statement.
Greg Michaels, Chairman and CEO of SCT&E LNG, said, “This is an important next step for our project as we have started preparing for the FERC pre-filing process. The FERC’s review process is, among other things, designed to address siting of marine facilities.”
Michaels added that over the next forty-five days, the company will select its natural gas liquefaction technology provider and engineering contractor, moving closer towards the scheduled start of the FERC pre-filing process in the second half of 2015.
