This permit application covers three proposed development projects: the Liquefaction Project, the Phase II Project, and the Phase II Modification Project. Freeport LNG1 is seeking or has gained Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval. The Phase II Project was authorized by the FERC in 2006, but the proposed facilities at the company’s existing LNG import terminal on Quintana Island have not yet been constructed and certain design modifications have since been made. These modifications are embodied in the Phase II Modification Project as discussed in more detail below. FERC approval for the unmodified Phase II facilities, which continue to be identified under the Phase II Project, remains in place.
FERC approval for the Liquefaction Project and the Phase II Modification Project is anticipated in late 2013, pending completion of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will address both projects.
