Energy Transfer LP is developing a large-scale LNG export facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana located on the Calcasieu ship channel. The project will convert Energy Transfer’s existing Lake Charles LNG import and regasification terminal to an LNG export facility, providing a cost advantage over other proposed LNG projects on the Gulf Coast.
The project is fully permitted for three 5.5 MTPA liquefaction trains which will utilize existing infrastructure. It will also benefit from abundant natural gas supply and proximity to major pipeline infrastructure, including Energy Transfer’s vast pipeline network. The project is estimated to create up to 5,000 jobs during construction and 200 full-time positions when fully operational.
