Lake Charles LNG Wikipedia
Lake Charles LNG (former name: Trunkline LNG) is a liquefied natural gas import terminal in Lake Charles, Louisiana, United States. It is owned by the subsidiary of Energy Transfer Equity. Together with Royal Dutch Shell there is a plan to build a 15 million tons per year liquefaction plant to the terminal to allow LNG export. However, the investment decision is delayed.
The Phase I expansion, which included a second ship berth and a new LNG storage tank that increased terminal storage capacity to 9 billion cubic feet (250,000,000 m3), was placed in service on April 5, 2006. Trunkline LNG completed the Phase II terminal expansion in early July 2006, increasing sustained sendout capacity to 1.8 billion cubic feet per day (51,000,000 m3/d) and peak sendout capacity to 2.1 billion cubic feet per day (59,000,000 m3/d). The Phase II expansion also included the construction of unloading capabilities at the terminal’s second dock.
