Venture Global and Tellurian seek extensions for their LNG export projects (US)

The energy companies Venture Global LNG and Tellurian are seeking permit extensions to complete the construction of their respective LNG export projects in the US. Venture Global LNG is seeking a one-year permit extension to complete construction of its 10 Mt/year Calcasieu Pass LNG export project in Louisiana, in a filing with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The company has said faulty power equipment have delayed the facility's commissioning, which was originally scheduled for 2023. The existing authorisation to complete work on the LNG project expires on 21 February 2024 but commissioning is not expected to occur before late 2024.

In addition, Tellurian has been awarded a three-year permit extension to complete construction of its 27.6 Mt/year Driftwood LNG export terminal, located near Lake Charles in Louisiana. The decision represents a boost for the long-delayed liquefied natural gas project, as the FERC permit extension gives the company until April 2029 to complete the ongoing construction. 

There are currently six operational LNG liquefaction export terminals in the US, for a total capacity of 106 bcm/year (about 78 Mt/year).
