Cambridge Energy (CE) has pushed further its estimate of when it will submit the FERC application regarding its Cambridge Energy Floating LNG (CE FLNG) project.

The company projects its submission for the fourth quarter of 2022, compared to its earlier plan to submit in the first quarter of 2021. The project’s estimated startup date remains unchanged for the fourth quarter of 2026.

Cambridge Energy plans to carry out the CE FLNG project in two phases. The first phase will include the construction and installation of pipelines and marine facilities required by the involved FLNG vessels. The phase will also include a berth and turning basin, which requires a deepening of the Mississippi River delta, for traditional LNG vessels. The second phase includes the construction and installation of the mooring system, and the installation of two FLNG vessels. In 2012, the Department of Energy Office of Fossil Fuels granted authorisation for Cambridge to use two vessels to export up to 8 MTPA of LNG.
