Magnolia LNG Lake Charles project advances

Magnolia LNG LLC (MLNG) has signed an engineering, procurement, and construction contract for its four-train, 8-million-tonne/year (tpy) natural gas liquefaction plant in Lake Charles, La., and received the final environmental impact statement for the project from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (OGJ Online, Jan. 19, 2015).

MLNG’s lump-sum, turnkey EPC contract, worth $4.354 billion, is with a joint venture of KBR Inc. and SK Engineering & Construction, to be led by KBR.

The project includes the liquefaction trains with design capacities of 2 million tpy or greater each, two 160,000-cu-m storage tanks, LNG marine and ship-loading facilities, and supporting facilities.

MLNG’s parent, LNG Ltd. of West Perth, Australia, developed the project’s liquefaction process, called Optimized Single Mixed Refrigerant, which involves ammonia precooling.

FERC’s environmental nod covers the LNG project and associated Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline Lake Charles Expansion Project. After a required 30-day wait, FERC can act on the project applications.
