Several U.S. gas export projects delay planned start dates
This is according to company updates that began posting this week on the U.S. Department of Energy's website.
LNG terminal developers must provide semiannual progress reports for their facilities in April and October, as required by the department. Not all projects have posted April reports yet.

LNG projects must secure numerous regulatory approvals before they can begin exports, and progress is often held up by regulatory or commercial issues.
April updates published on the department's website showed later dates for six projects: SCT&E LNG's export terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana; SeaOne Gulfport's CGL terminal at Gulfport, Mississippi; Texas LNG Brownsville's terminal in Brownsville, Texas; Gulf LNG Liquefaction's terminal at Pascagoula, Mississippi; Freeport-McMoRan's Main Pass Energy Hub Deepwater facility off the Louisiana coast; and the Venture Global Calcasieu Pass export project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. ■
