Lake Charles LNG Facility

Energy Transfer is developing a world-class LNG export facility on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The Project

Energy Transfer plans to convert its existing Lake Charles LNG import and regasification facility into a LNG export facility. It is the only brownfield project among those in the pre-FID process, which it is expected to reach by the end of 2022.

Permit Ready

The Lake Charles LNG project is fully permitted, uses existing infrastructure, and benefits from abundant natural gas supply through existing connections to the Henry Hub and connectivity to Energy Transfer's vast network of natural gas pipelines.

Environmentally Sensitive

The project will use a best available techniques concept to be a class leader in terms of environment emissions, performance and efficiency.

Economic Benefits

The project is estimated to create up to 5,000 jobs during construction and 200 full-time positions when fully operational. Recapitalizing on its existing assets provides a cost advantage over other proposed LNG projects on the Gulf Coast.


LNG Future

The facility will be an important part of the future of Louisiana’s growing LNG industry.

Project Framework

The project, if sanctioned through an affirmative FID, will have a liquefaction capacity of 16.45 million tonnes per annum.

Project Milestone

The Lake Charles LNG project received approval from FERC on December 5, 2019 for a five-year extension to build an LNG export facility and place it into service.

Energy Leadership

Energy Transfer is one of the largest pipeline midstream operators in the U.S. with more than 114,000 miles of pipelines and related energy infrastructure in 41 U.S. states.
