EIA: US liquefaction capacity additions by project and train, release date -- March 2, 2017

Updates

September 18, 2017: FERC approves Kinder Morgan's Savannah, Georgia, Elba Island LNG export terminal.

May 6, 2017: update. Texans for Natural Gas said in a report that seven LNG export projects proposed or under construction in the state could raise $20 billion or more in tax revenue, create more than 135,000 jobs and have a total economic impact of roughly $145 billion.

April 30, 2017: RBN Energy update. Archived.
  • Cheniere Energy's Sabine Pass, southwestern Louisiana: three liquefaction trains are operating; a fourht is gearing up to run; a fifth is nearing completion
  • Alaska: newly filed plan by state-owned Alaska Gasline Development Corp to develop a $40-billion-plus LNG export project; would include an 800-mile gas pipeline from Prudhoe Baky to Nikiski, AK; three liquefaction trains at Nikiski; two export loading docks
  • second-wave proposals (similar to first-wave projects now in operation at Sabine Pass ; Cameron LNG, Louisiana; Dominion's Cove Point LNG, Maryland; Freeport LNG and Cheniere's Corpus Christi LNG, Texas; all projects feature liquefaction trains with capacities between 4 and 5.2 MTPA each; most are located at existing LNG import terminals, eliminating some of the port-related costs that projects at greenfield sites would face
  • Brownsville, TX; and, Texas City, TX: NextDecade LLC's; the tried-and-true approach; each site would have several 4.5-MTPA trains; online in the early 2020s
  • Texas LNG Brownsville LLC: a second category of second-wave projects; smaller-scale proposals; trains would have capacities of 1 to 2 MTPA each; at Brownsville: plans to build two 2-MTPA liquefaction trains; some appeal; more interest since first announced
  • Another second-wave example: Cheniere's plan to build seven 1.4-MTPA trains to meet the incremental LNG needs of international LNG buyers
  • Veresen's Jordan Cove project, Oregon: up to five 1.5-MTPA trains
  • third category: the Alaska LNG proposal; would require installing some 800 mies of new, 42-inche-diameter pipeline across Alaska
March 4, 2017: update on Texas LNG (Third Point LLC / Samsung consortium) mentioned in the original post below.

February 1, 2017: Louisiana's Port Fourchon may add LNG terminal, over at Rigzone.

January 28, 2017: Exelon has applied for an LNG export facility permit for Brownsville, TX. 

November 28, 2016: from FuelFix -- see 5th bullet below -- "Tellurian Investments / Driftwood LNG" -- GE has invested a $25 million equity stake in Tellurian Investment's Driftwood LNG projecct.

The list of US LNG export projects at various points along the regulatory process, as reported by RBN Energy. First, Louisiana, mostly near Lake Charles:
  • Cheniere: to build a sixth 4.5 MTPA liquefaction train at Sabine Pass LNG site
  • Cameron LNG: has proposed two additional 4.5-MTPA liquefaction trains at its Hackberry facility south of Lake Charles, LA
  • Lake Charles LNG: has proposed a three-train, 16.2-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export facilty in advanced stages
  • LNG Ltd: has proposed the development of the Magnolia LNG project; as many as four 2-MTPA liquefaction plants, near Lake Charles [Update, DOE approved, December 2, 2016]
  • Tellurian Investments: developing Driftwood LNG, total capacity up to 26 MTPA; also near Lake Charles
  • Louisiana LNG Energy LLC: has proposed construction of a 6-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export terminal on Mississippi river southeast of New Orleans
  • Venture Global LNG: two proposed liquefaction/LNG export terminals in Louisiana; one 20-MTPA facility and one 10-MTPA facility
  • Southern California Telephone & Energy: developing the Monkey Island liquefaction/LNG export project; south of Lake Charles; at least three 4-MTPA trains
  • G2 LNG: has proposed a liquefaction/LNG export facility; up to 14 MTPA; Cameron Parish
  • CE FLNG: proposed project; two floating LNG vessels; each vessel up to 4 MTPA
Now, Texas:
  • Cheniere: plans to build three more 4.5-MTPA liquefaction trains at its Cheniere's Corpus Christi facility
  • Freeport LNG: developing a possible fourth 4.4-MTPA train at its Freeport site; completed; online December 16, 2016;
  • Port Arthur LNG, an affiliate of Sempra: leading the development of a proposed two-train, 10-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export terminal along the Sabine-Neches Waterway in Port Arthur; Woodside Petroleum is also participating in this project
  • Annova LNG: has proposed a six-train, 6-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export facility planned by Exelon Generation for Brownsville
  • Third Point LLC (a NYC-based investment fund) and Samsung Engineering are developing Texas LNG, a proposed 4-MTPA liquefaction/LNG export terminal in Brownsville
  • Golden Pass LNG: a joint venture of Qatar Petroleum and Exxon Mobil; a 15.6 MTPA plant at its existing LNG import terminal at Sabine Pass
  • Rio Grande LNG, being developed by NextDecade LLC: up to six 4.5-MTPA liquefaciton trains and two LNG loading berths along the Brownsville Shipping Channel
In other states:
  • Kinder Morgan: two 5-MTPA trains in Pascagoula; and, a 2.5-MTPA Elba Island project in Chatham County, GA (near Savannah, Georgia)
  • Veresen: a proposed 6-MTPA Jordan Cove LNG project in Coos Bay, OR
  • Maryland, Cove Point (not mentioned in this RBN article)
Bottom line:
  • those projects would add more than 220 MTPA of capacity
  • those projects would require more than 30 billion cubic feet of gas / day
  • it's safe to say, according to RBN Energy, that most of these projects will never get to the FID stage
  • RBN Energy: does not imagine more than a few new liquefaction trains would be financed and builby by the mid-2020s
