The Best LNG Export Site in North America!
1. To permit an LNG Export Site in the United States, an application is made to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The FERC is the lead agency that prepares an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and coordinates the permit approvals of the many stakeholders to include other federal agencies, state agencies, municipalities, communities and independent environmental groups.
The EIS is prepared by the evaluation of Resource Reports submitted by the Project developer; each Resource Report focused on the environmental impact that the Project has to the surrounding community. Thirteen (13) Resource Reports are submitted to FERC in a Filing to construct an LNG Export Terminal.
1. Pointe LNG is developing an LNG Export Terminal on a 600-acre Site with showed no significant environmental impacts through the FERC Process in a previous filing. The Resource Reports from that previous filing are available to public viewing in FERC Docket PF14-17 on the FERC website link below:
2. The Pointe LNG Site has in excess of 65 feet water depth to berth LNG tankers on the Mississippi River. The area is naturally scouring by the river current and never needs dredging. The Pointe LNG marine terminal will safely moor gas carriers up to 175,000 cubic meters (est. 3.7 Bcf); the similar hull shape of a 100,000 ton Aframax crude carrier that currently navigates the Mississippi River past the Pointe LNG Site while transiting an additional 80 miles to Norco, LA.
3. The Pointe LNG Site is the only available site in North America that has access to natural gas feedstock supplies via existing pipeline infrastructure. Customers for Pointe LNG can contract for available Firm Transportation on Tennessee Gas Pipeline and Southern Natural Gas pipelines to affordably receive natural gas deliveries from producers in Marcellus, Utica, Haynesville, STACK and SCOOP shale plays.
4. Pointe LNG will be the low-cost LNG export terminal in North America
