Grand Isle LNG plans to build a 4.2 Mt/year export facility in Louisiana (US)

The US-based company Grand Isle LNG has announced plans to develop and build a 4.2 Mt/year LNG export facility located 21 km south of Grand Isle in the Plaquemines Parish, in Louisiana (United States). Construction of the Grand Isle LNG facility is planned in two phases. Once completed, the plant will include two 2.1 Mt/year liquefaction platforms, two gas treatment platforms, two loading platforms, and two 155,000 cm storage and offloading vessels. The facility is expected to start delivering LNG in 2026.

Earlier in 2023, Gulfstream LNG Development also announced its intention to develop an LNG export project in Louisiana. The developer filed an application with the US Department of Energy (DOE) seeking authorisation to export up to 4 Mt/year of LNG to free trade agreement (FTA) and non-FTA countries.

There are currently six LNG export terminals operating in the United States for a total capacity of nearly 80 Mt/year, and the country exported more than 158 bcm (118 Mt) of LNG in 2022.
