BP today announced that it will begin the pre-filing process with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to construct and operate a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal located on the Delaware River in the state of New Jersey with first gas targeted for 2008.

The proposed Crown Landing LNG facility will be owned and operated by BP with LNG sourced principally from Trinidad & Tobago where BP is the largest natural gas producer. LNG could also come from other supply sources within the BP global LNG portfolio.

Crown Landing LNG will have a daily send-out capacity of 1.2 billion cubic feet and a short-term peaking capability of up to 1.4bcf/d. Facilities will include three 150,000 cubic meter (3.5bcf) storage tanks with nitrogen injection for blending and flexibility; and a pier designed to dock ships with capacities of up to 200,000m3. The terminal will be able to connect to major pipeline systems serving the Northeast.

Anne Quinn, BP Group Vice-President, Gas, Power & Renewables said: "Crown Landing is an important project for both the United States and for BP. It offers US energy consumers a strategic new source of clean burning natural gas supply delivered directly to Northeast markets. The project will bring local jobs, taxes and improve the region's overall economic competitiveness.

"For BP it will enable us to build on our position as a leading provider of natural gas for US consumers and help meet the country's growing demand."
