Tellurian expects to start building Driftwood LNG export project in 2019

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gave Tellurian Inc. a schedule for the review of the proposed Driftwood LNG LLC export facility and associated pipeline that slated release of a final environmental impact statement for Oct. 12, 2018.

The schedule gave federal agencies cooperating with FERC a 90-day deadline after the final environmental impact statement, until January 10, 2019, to finish their work on the project review. (FERC dockets CP17-117, CP17-118)

Based on this schedule, Tellurian expected to be able to make a final investment decision and potentially start construction in the first half of 2019, according to a Dec. 27 news release. The timing and outcome of any FERC order is up to the commission. Tellurian also expected to sign commercial agreements for Driftwood by the first half of 2018. Under the company's timetable, the project would start operations in 2023.

The Driftwood LNG export facility is designed to have LNG production capacity of 27.6 million tonnes per annum. The 96-mile Driftwood pipeline would be capable of carrying up to 4 Bcf/d of gas to the LNG facility.
