Delfin LNG wins FERC extension

Delfin LNG, the company behind the floating export development in the Gulf of Mexico, has won a one-year extension from the US FERC.

FERC staff approved Delfin LNG’s request for extension to September 28, 2021, to complete construction of the project’s onshore facilities and put them in service.

The unit of Delfin Midstream has last year also sought and won a 1-year extension from the regulator to build the facilities.

We reported earlier this month on this new development as Delfin LNG is struggling to secure offtake deals for its 13 mtpa project.

The company is having difficulties to attract LNG buyers citing “global coronavirus pandemic, U.S. trade disputes with China, and the drop in global oil prices”.

This lead the company to seek for another extension to build the onshore facilities.

These include metering, compression, and piping infrastructure located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

The facilities would transport and deliver natural gas to Delfin LNG’s deepwater port in federal waters offshore Louisiana.

The US company plans to install up to four FLNG vessels that could produce up to 13 mtpa of LNG or 1.7 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.

It previously said that LNG production should start in the second half of 2023.

Delfin is also developing the 8 mtpa Avocet LNG project with slots for two additional FLNG vessels.
