G2 scraps plans for Louisiana LNG export terminal

US firm G2 Net-Zero scrapped plans to build an LNG export facility with a capacity of about 13 mtpa in Louisiana.

According to a filling dated March 28, the LNG terminal developer requested from the US DOE to vacate its LNG export authorization to free trade agreement (FTA) countries and withdrew its pending application for LNG export authorization to non-free trade agreement nations.

“Since submitting its applications for LNG export authorization, G2 LNG’s corporate focus has shifted away from LNG export activities to development of net-zero greenhouse gas emission energy products,” G2 LNG said.

Thus, G2 LNG recently decided to cease development of its previously planned natural gas liquefaction facilities in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, it said.

According to G2 Net-Zero’s website, the firm plans to build a “world-scale” blue ammonia plant in Louisiana.

The firm previously said that its $11 billion energy complex would produce LNG, as well as industrial by-products like blue ammonia, argon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen.

The venture of Chas Roemer Innovations plans to use technology developed by NET Power and Siemens to provide “emission-free” electricity.

Last year, G2 Net-Zero also awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for its planned power generation plant to Houston-based McDermott.

Land lease

Documents posted on social media suggest that US LNG firm Tellurian, the developer of the Driftwood LNG terminal near Lake Charles, Louisiana, signed lease agreements with G2 Net-Zero for the land in Cameron Parish.

Tellurian’s annual report shows that the firm was assigned the rights and obligations of an unrelated third party in certain land lease agreements in February 2023.

Also, the Driftwood developer paid about $24.6 million for the lease agreements.

Tellurian did not reveal the name of the firm in the report.

LNG Prime invited Tellurian to comment on the matter.
