EXPORT DEEPWATER PORT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
Thirteen miles south of Grand Isle, Louisiana, a proposed LNG export facility promises to deliver a cleaner environment and competitively priced US LNG, as well as significant economic benefits to the region.
Poised to provide clean-burning US LNG to partners around the world, Grand Isle LNG expects to start delivering in 2026. The proposed Deepwater port is a platform-based modular design, which combined with its pipeline access and its offshore location will result in one of the least expensive and safest operations on the market today. Importantly, all platforms and many components of the facility will be Louisiana made by Louisiana energy workers.
Located in federal waters of the West Delta Blocks in depths ranging from 68 to 72 feet, construction of the facility is planned in two phases. When complete, the plant will consist of a crew quarters platform, two gas treatment platform, two 2.1 million tons per annum (MTPA) liquefaction platform, two loading platforms, one thermal oxidizer platform, and two floating storage units (FSUs) and offloading vessels.
Because the Deepwater Port licensing application will be sanctioned by MARAD, it will go through a rigorous environmental and safety review through numerous federal agencies, in cooperation with Louisiana state agencies.
Grand Isle’s management team represents experienced engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs with more than 120 years combined work experience in Oil and Gas development, including offshore platform finance, construction, and operations.
