Summary of the Planned Project Freeport LNG intends to add a fourth liquefaction unit to Freeport LNG’s natural gas liquefaction facilities on Quintana Island in Brazoria County, PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Texas. The Freeport LNG Train 4 Project (Train 4 Project) would be located west and adjacent to the facilities authorized and currently under construction for the Phase II Modification Project (Docket No. CP12–29–000) and Liquefaction Project (Docket No. CP12–509–000), which comprises three liquefaction trains and related facilities. Train 4 would be within the existing Freeport LNG site boundary. Freeport LNG indicates that the Train 4 Project would provide additional liquefaction capacity of approximately 5.1 million metric tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG for export, which equates to a natural gas throughput capacity of approximately 0.72 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). This would enable Freeport LNG to respond favorably and proactively to short- and longer-term fluctuations in domestic and global gas markets. The Freeport LNG Train 4 Project would consist of the following facilities: • A propane pre-cooled mixed refrigerant liquefaction unit; • a feed gas receiving and metering station; • utility, auxiliary, and control systems, including common utilities, spill containment systems, fire and safety systems, one electric substation, security systems, and plant roads. The general location of the project facilities is shown in Appendix 1.1 Land Requirements for Construction The Train 4 Project liquefaction facilities would be entirely within the Freeport LNG’s existing site boundary on Quintana Island in Brazoria County, Texas. Construction of the liquefaction facilities would be within areas approved as temporary work space for the Phase II Modification Project and Liquefaction Project. Construction of the Train 4 Project liquefaction facilities is expected to affect about 87 acres of land. Following construction, Freeport LNG would maintain about 21 acres for permanent operation of the Train 4 Project’s facilities; the remaining acreage would be restored and revert to former uses. Non-jurisdictional Facilities The facility will receive natural gas from a 2,000-foot-long intrastate natural gas pipeline (feed gas pipeline) and power from a five-mile-long electric line 1 The appendices referenced in this notice will not appear in the Federal Register.
