Tellurian receives US approval for Driftwood gas pipelines
April 24 (Reuters) - Liquefied natural gas (LNG) developer Tellurian Inc said on Monday the U.S. energy regulator had authorized Line 200 and Line 300 of its $1.4 billion Driftwood natural gas transmission pipeline project.
The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the Louisiana-based pipelines on April 21. The company expects the project to be operational in 2023 to meet the growing demand for natural gas in Southwest Louisiana.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
The pipelines will have a capacity to supply up to five and a half billion cubic feet of natural gas daily, the company said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Tellurian is yet to take a final investment decision on its Driftwood LNG export terminal, which has witnessed several setbacks with companies such as Shell Plc exiting the $13.6 billion project last year. (Reporting by Sourasis Bose in Bengaluru; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
