This is part of “a second wave” of U.S. LNG-export projects. Technip will execute engineering services for the Monkey Island LNG project, including front-end engineering design (FEED) and support the project’s application for approval to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The $6.9 billion project comprises three 4 mta liquefaction trains, with utilities, storage and marine infrastructure.

SCT&E LNG hopes to export its first LNG in 2022. The company, a subsidiary of Southern California Telephone & Energy, applied two years ago to the US Department of Energy to export LNG from Monkey Island to non-Free Trade Agreement countries. It secured permission to export to FTA countries in December 2014.

The proposed site has access to the Calcasieu ship channel and lies just 5km off the Gulf of Mexico.
