North America LNG projects quarterly update: Q1 2016

North America LNG projects quarterly update: Q1 2016

Report summary

Large-scale west Canadian projects Pacific NorthWest and LNG Canada are moving closer to being FID-ready. LNG Canada secured additional permits in December – from the NEB for a 40-year 3.7 bcfd export licence, and from the BC Oil and Gas Commission to start construction of the LNG plant. Pacific NorthWest's CEAA-review also restarted following a six-month delay and the project could be authorised to proceed in April 2016. Lake Charles received FERC authorisation in December. The Energy Transfer/BG project is targeting FID in late 2016, having already obtained a non-FTA export permit. Shell will have both LNG Canada and Lake Charles to consider once the BG acquisition has completed. Shell also has 100% offtake from Kinder Morgan's Elba Island project. Construction of the moveable modular liquefaction system (MMLS) units for Elba Island has begun, and these units will be moved on-site once FERC authorization is received by May 2016.
