Lake Charles LNG


Lake Charles LNG Company LLC (previously named Trunkline LNG Company, LLC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ETE, owns the Lake Charles LNG import terminal and regasification facility located on the Gulf Coast near Lake Charles, Louisiana. The import terminal has approximately 9.0 Bcf of above ground LNG storage capacity and the regasification facility has a send-out capacity of 1.8 bcf/day.

 

 

About the Facility

Currently, the LNG regasification and import facility takes liquefied natural gas and turns it back into a gaseous state. It has earned and sustained a reputation for safety and reliability, while helping to ensure dependable natural gas supply for consumers across the country.

 

Three LNG storage tanks, each 196 feet (60 m) in diameter and 163 feet (50 m) tall, and a fourth at 232 feet (71 m) in diameter and 205 feet (62 m) tall are the most prominent physical features of the facility. The tanks have a combined capacity of approximately 2.7 million barrels (430,000 cubic meters) of LNG, or approximately 9.0 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of gas. They were specially designed and constructed to store LNG at extremely cold temperatures for sustained periods.

 

About LNG

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been converted to liquid form. To make natural gas easier to store and transport, it is cooled and condensed into a liquid, for storage in specially designed facilities like the Lake Charles LNG facility.
