On April 16, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted Sabine Pass Liquefaction and Sabine Pass LNG (collectively, Applicants) authorization to construct and operate facilities to liquefy and export domestically produced natural gas at the existing Sabine Pass Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.[1] The project will be constructed in two stages, each with two LNG process trains containing gas treatment facilities, gas turbine-driven refrigerant compressors, cold boxes and heat exchangers for cooling and liquefying natural gas, waste heat recovery systems, and other facilities.
