Venture Global Delays FERC Application Filing Date for Delta LNG
Venture Global LNG, a US-based LNG export project developer, said it has pushed back its plans to file permit applications with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for its Delta LNG project.
The company said in a filing with the regulator that it has revised the date it plans to file its application from 13 December 2019 to 10 January 2020. The additional time will allow Delta LNG to further evaluate route alternatives proposed by the US National Marine Fisheries Service (NFMS) to reduce impacts in tidal marsh environments.
Approximately 85% and 69% of the accessible areas have been surveyed for wetlands and cultural resources, respectively. Venture Global said the results of these surveys will be included in the FERC application and other applicable federal permit applications.
The Delta LNG facility will be located in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, on the Mississippi River. It will have a total production capacity of 20 mtpa and is planned to be developed in two phases, each with a capacity of 10 mtpa.
Phase 1 construction on Delta LNG is expected to begin in the second half of 2021, with commercial operations commencing in the second half of 2024.
