Pointe LNG LLC said Monday it’s signed a pact with KBR to provide front end engineering design and services for Pointe LNG’s proposed liquefied natural gas liquefaction/export facility to be built south of New Orleans, Louisiana.
“We are pleased to have KBR, a global EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) LNG contractor as a partner, and this strategic agreement is an important step in the development of our project,” said James Lindsay, Pointe’s co-founder.
The Pointe LNG facility includes three liquefaction trains, each capable of producing up to 2 million metric tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG, marine facilities to allow for the berthing and loading of ships, and two storage tanks each with a capacity of 160,000 cubic meters (5.65 million cubic feet).
The project also includes two 36-inch natural gas pipeline laterals totaling 6.6 miles in length, and capable of flowing 900,000 million cubic feet per day of natural gas, Kallanish Energy reports.
Assuming that various contingencies and approvals are satisfied, construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021, with initial operations expected in the first quarter of 2025.
