Delfin LNG, a unit of Delfin Midstream and the developer of a floating LNG export project in the Gulf of Mexico, has won more time from US FERC to put into service the project’s onshore facilities in Louisiana.
The LNG terminal developer filed a motion with FERC on July 15 requesting a one-year extension of time to construct and place into service the onshore metering, compression, and piping facilities.
The facilities would transport and deliver natural gas to Delfin’s deepwater port in federal waters offshore Louisiana.
Moreover, Delfin plans to install up to four self-propelled FLNG vessels that could produce up to 13 mtpa of LNG or 1.7 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.
FERC said in a filling dated November 18 it granted a one-year extension of time, to September 28, 2023, to Delfin to construct and make available for service the onshore facilities.
This year Delfin has been quite active and signed a $3 billion long-term deal to supply LNG to a unit of energy trader Vitol as well as a HOA with Centrica.
Most recently, Delfin entered into a deal in September with US oil and gas producer Devon Energy for long-term liquefaction capacity but also a pre-financial investment decision strategic investment.
Delfin said at that time it expects to make FID on its first floating LNG vessel by the end of this year.
