Feds approve $10 billion Golden Pass LNG project – Beaumont Enterprise

Golden Pass Products received a permit from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this week for its proposed $10 billion liquefied natural gas project from their Sabine Pass terminal.The company is authorized “to site, construct, and operate the proposed project located in Jefferson County, Texas,” as described in the application and “subject to the environmental conditions” in the order, which include wetlands mitigation, the authorization order said.The project would include three liquefaction trains, gas treatment facilities, a self-generation power plant and expansion of the company’s current pipeline system.Golden Pass said in a news release in July that the project “is expected to generate about 3,800 jobs” in the United States during 25 years of operations, with more than 200 permanent jobs at the Sabine Pass site, in addition to “thousands of direct and indirect jobs” during construction.Total capacity of the facility would be 15.6 million metric tons of LNG per year.
