美国西海岸首个LNG项目获批

石油设备网讯 据碳氢加工网3月20日消息,据美联社报道,联邦能源监管委员会以压倒性多数投票支持俄勒冈州的Jordan Cove液化天然气项目。

这条管道将从另一条管道输送天然气,从阿尔伯塔省输送到俄勒冈州,然后Pembina将在Jordan Cove液化,然后出口到亚洲。其日产能可达10.4亿立方英尺天然气。五条液化生产线的年产能将分别为150万吨液化天然气。

许多人可能会辩称,现在不是增加液化天然气产能的最佳时机,但多数企业都押注于未来几年天然气市场的复苏,而亚洲仍是一个关键市场。然而,与联邦监管机构不同的是,俄勒冈州似乎不太赞同这个想法。

投票支持该项目的一名委员表示:“在对该项目对环境和社会经济资源的影响进行了必要的认真研究后,考虑到该项目将提供的公共利益,该项目的环境影响是可以接受的。”

First U.S. West Coast LNG Project Gets The Greenlight

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commissions voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Jordan Cove LNG project in Oregon but set one condition: Pembina, the company behind the project, must obtain all necessary permits for the construction from the state authorities, the AP reports.

“Currently, this project does not have a green light from state agencies,” Oregon Governor Kate Brown said as quoted by the AP. “I have asked the state’s lawyers to consider all appropriate legal action to assure that Oregon permitting processes will be followed.”

Pembina has already applied for one state permit—a water quality certification document—and has been denied it. What’s more, the Oregon Department of State Lands refused to grant Pembina an extension to submit documents requesting a permit for sediment dredging at Coos Bay in preparation for the construction of the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline.

The pipeline will transport natural gas from another pipeline that brings it into Oregon from Alberta and then Pembina will liquefy this at the Jordan Cove facility before exporting it to Asia. Its daily capacity would be up to 1.04 billion cu ft of natural gas. The annual capecity of each of the five proposed liquefaction trains will be 1.5 million tons of LNG each.

Many would argue now is not the best time to add more LNG capacity, but most companies are betting on a recovery in natural gas markets over the next few years--and Asia remains a key market. However, it seems that the state of Oregon is not too fond of the idea, unlike federal regulators.

“After taking the necessary hard look at the project’s impacts on environmental and socioeconomic resources, the order finds that the project’s environmental impacts are acceptable considering the public benefits that will be provided by the project,” one of the commissioners that voted in favour of the project said.
