Lake Charles LNG is a liquefied natural gas import and regasification plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Formerly known as Trunkline LNG Co. LLC, Lake Charles LNG is a wholly owned subsidiaries of Energy Transfer Equity LP and Energy Transfer Partners LP.[1][2]

Lake Charles LNG provides terminal service for shippers by receiving LNG at the facility for storage and delivering such LNG to shippers, either in liquid state or gaseous state after regasification.[3]

Background

The former Trunkline LNG has been in transition since 2006.

The Phase I expansion, which included a second ship berth and a new LNG storage tank that increased terminal storage capacity to 9 billion cubic feet (250,000,000 m3), was placed in service on April 5, 2006. Trunkline LNG completed the Phase II terminal expansion in early July 2006, increasing sustained sendout capacity to 1.8 billion cubic feet per day (51,000,000 m3/d) and peak sendout capacity to 2.1 Bcf/d. The Phase II expansion also included the construction of unloading capabilities at the terminal’s second dock.[4]

The next transition project will convert Energy Transfer's existing LNG regasification facility into a liquefaction plant.[5] Shell is working with Energy Transfer to add export capability to Lake Charles LNG's existing import capabilities. [6]

In December 2015 the Lake Charles LNG Project gained approval from the U.S. energy regulator for their LNG and export plant expansion project. [7] Construction of the expansion project is pending.
