PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) – Gulf LNG Liquefaction Co. has received permission from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to begin its pre-filing review process to add liquefaction and export capabilities to the $1 billion liquefied natural gas storage terminal in Pascagoula.
GLLC and Gulf LNG Energy are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Gulf LNG Holdings Group, which is held 50 percent by Southern Gulf LNG Co., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kinder Morgan.
If the company gets permission to export LNG to non-free trade agreement countries and the project is approved, Richard Wheatley, a Kinder Morgan spokesman, tells The Mississippi Press it could bring an $8 billion investment to the Pascagoula facility.
He says the Pascagoula is now seventh on the Department of Energy’s list of applications for LNG export to non-FTA countries.
