LNG Limited to sell Magnolia project for $2.25 million

Cash-strapped LNG Limited is selling its proposed Magnolia liquefied natural gas export project to UK-based privately held company Global Energy Megatrend.

The $2.25 million-worth transaction, scheduled to close on Friday, includes the Louisiana LNG export project and its 16 employees.

The deal also includes LNG Limited’s optimized single mixed refrigerant liquefaction technology that would be used at the proposed terminal.

LNG Limited’s voluntary administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers announced the deal. The Australian company appointed them May 1 to review its assets.

Should the transaction complete, all liabilities associated with Magnolia LNG will pass to the acquirer, Global Energy Megatrend.

The transaction does not include LNG Limited’s proposed Bear Head export project in eastern Canada.

That project will remain to be controlled by LNG Limited.

Magnolia LNG, a wholly-owned unit of LNG Limited is developing an 8 mtpa LNG export terminal in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The project site is located adjacent to the Calcasieu Ship Channel, an established shipping channel in the Lake Charles District.

The project plan includes the development of four LNG production trains of 2 million tonnes per year each featuring LNG Limited’s patented process technology.

A joint venture between KBR and SKE&C is undertaking EPC contracting efforts for Magnolia LNG, with KBR leading the joint venture team.
