Project Description

  • Magnolia LNG is a mid-scale LNG export project, with four trains (liquefaction units), each with a plant capacity of 2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG for a total of up to 8 million mtpa or greater
  • A 115-acre project site on the Industrial Canal near Lake Charles in Southwest Louisiana has been selected, and a long-term Lease Option Agreement has been executed with the Port of Lake Charles. The lease term is for 30 years, with four 10 year extensions (for a total of 70 years)
  • Magnolia LNG will receive natural gas through the existing Kinder Morgan Louisiana Pipeline. The natural gas will be treated, liquefied and stored onsite
  • The patented OSMR® liquefaction is highly efficient and is configured to generate lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than similar LNG processes. Its technology uses a combined heat and power plant and a steam-driven pre-cooling refrigeration system to minimize the Project’s fuel gas use and emissions
  • Magnolia LNG plans to be a meaningful and integral part of the U.S. domestic LNG market by including facilities to load LNG onto:
    • LNG carriers for export overseas
    • LNG carriers and barges for U.S. domestic marine distribution and the possibility of LNG bunkering
    • LNG trucks for road distribution to LNG refuelling stations in Louisiana and the surrounding states
  • A final investment decision is expected upon execution of sufficient offtake agreements to support financing
