Energy Transfer LP is proposing a large-scale LNG export facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The project would convert Energy Transfer’s existing Lake Charles LNG import and regasification terminal to an LNG export facility, which provides a cost advantage over other proposed LNG projects on the Gulf Coast.
In December 2019, a comprehensive commercial tender package was issued to engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors to submit final commercial bids.
The project is fully permitted, uses existing infrastructure and benefits from abundant natural gas supply and proximity to major pipeline infrastructure, including Energy Transfer’s vast pipeline network. If built, the project is estimated to create up to 5,000 jobs during construction and 200 full-time positions when fully operational.
