Texas LNG, which is developing a 4 million ton per year liquefaction project for Brownsville, Texas, has received government approvals including a US Coast Guard Letter of Recommendation, a US Department of Transportation Letter of Opinion, and a US Department of Defense Clearance Letter. "Receipt of all three of the letters are positive and important milestones in Texas LNG’s project development and required steps of the Ferc [Federal Energy Regulatory Commission] approval process," the company said. The US Coast Guard Letter of Recommendation confirms the suitability of the Brownsville Ship Channel for Texas LNG’s anticipated marine traffic as it relates to safety and security, according to the company. The US Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has determined that Texas LNG's methodology meets its requirements for design spill review. And finally, the US Department of Defense has determined that Texas LNG will have minimal impact on military training and operations. Texas LNG has secured long-term offtake term sheets from LNG buyers in China, Southeast Asia and Europe (LNGI Apr.13'18). The company is planning to start detailed engineering and other activities in 2018, upon closing of its current funding round. Full Ferc approval and a final investment decision are expected in 2019 with first phase production -- 2 out of the proposed 4 million tons -- expected to begin in 2023. Energy Intelligence
