Audubon secures Louisiana LNG contract

Houston-based Audubon Engineering has secured a contract to provide its services for a “major” greenfield liquefied natural gas (LNG) interconnect on the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

Under the contract, Audubon would provide detailed engineering and design of a transmission pipeline and associated infrastructure to provide gas for an undisclosed LNG facility, it said in a statement.

Regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the pipeline project would move between 1.5 and 2.0 Bcf/d of gas to serve as the main supply of the unidentified LNG export facility.

Prior to this contract, Audubon completed the front-end engineering in 2021.

The engineering firm said it would lead the project from its offices in Louisiana and Texas in partnership with FERC, a “major LNG export company”, and a “major interstate gas transmission firm” with the support of the firm’s integrated offshore and pipeline teams.

Audubon has previously worked on several LNG projects in Louisiana that included providing engineering service for an LNG facility, a transmission compressor station, and NuBlu Energy’s greenfield LNG production facility in Port Allen, according to its website.

In December, the Energy Information Administration said that US LNG export capacity would become the world’s largest this after the launch of new liquefaction trains at Calcasieu Pass and Sabine Pass.

Venture Global LNG recently received approval from federal regulators to export the first commissioning cargo from its Calcasieu Pass plant in Louisiana.

By the end of 2022, US nominal capacity would increase to 11.4 Bcf/d and peak capacity to 13.9 Bcf/d across seven LNG export facilities and 44 liquefaction trains, according to the agency.

This includes 16 full-scale, 18 mid-scale, but also 10 small-scale trains at Sabine Pass, Cove Point, Corpus Christi, Cameron, Elba Island, Calcasieu Pass, and Freeport.
