Golden Pass LNG Terminal LLC (Golden Pass LNG) announced today that it has been granted authority by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to place into service the Phase 2 terminal facilities.   

Phase 2 commissioning activities and performance tests of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal were successfully completed in late April. Golden Pass  LNG previously announced that Phase 1 commissioning  activities  and  performance  tests were completed in early March. 

As also previously announced, the FERC authorized Golden Pass Pipeline LLC (Golden Pass Pipeline)  to  place  in  service  the  69‐mile interstate pipeline  that  transports  gas  from  the  terminal  facilities to downstream markets.   

Combined Phase 1 and Phase 2 operations will enable nominal send out capacity of more than 2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from the terminal.  

Golden Pass LNG  and Golden Pass Pipeline operate state of the art terminal and pipeline facilities near Sabine Pass, Texas.  

These facilities are designed to safely and reliably receive and transport natural gas throughout Texas and Interstate Markets. 

Now fully operational, the terminal is among the largest LNG import facilities worldwide, with the capacity to import 15.6 million metric tons of LNG annually.

The pipeline, with multiple intra and interstate connections, is capable of transporting an average of 2.5 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas.

Houston headquartered Golden Pass LNG Terminal LLC and Golden Pass Pipeline LLC, are joint venture companies formed by affiliates of three of  the  world’s  largest and  most  experienced  oil  and  gas  companies: Qatar  Petroleum  International,  the international  arm  of  Qatar  Petroleum  (70%),  and  the  remaining  by  ExxonMobil (17.6%) and ConocoPhillips (12.4%).
