Lake Charles LNG is a planned LNG export project to be built at Energy Transfer’s existing LNG regasification facility located on the US Gulf Coast near Lake Charles, Louisiana. The export project will include construction of 15 mtpa of liquefaction capacity, and will utilize existing LNG storage and ship loading facilities. The project completed its front-end engineering design (FEED) in 2014. It received its permit to construct from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in 2015 and holds Department of Energy (DOE) permits to export LNG to both Free-Trade-Agreement (FTA) and Non-FTA countries. The project is expected to start up in late 2024 or early 2025. Lake Charles LNG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Transfer Equity, the general partner of Energy Transfer Partners.
