U.S. energy company Tellurian Inc. has asked federal energy regulators for more time to build its Driftwood liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant near Lake Charles, reports Reuters.
In a filing last week, Tellurian’s Driftwood LNG asked the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for an extra 36 months beyond the originally authorized in-service date to complete construction of the LNG plant and an associated natural gas pipeline.
In April 2019, FERC approved the construction of the 27.5-million tons per year Driftwood and gave Tellurian seven years, or until 2026, to complete the project. The extra 36-months would give Tellurian until 2029 to finish the project. Read more.
