Cambridge Energy (CE) FLNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in Louisiana, United States. In November of 2012, the Department of Fossil Energy permitted CE FLNG to export LNG associated with the proposed project, which would have been located in Louisiana, USA. In July of 2015, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) questioned the Cambridge Energy FLNG project viability as a result of CE FLNG's changing production schedule and lack of draft resource reports.
There were no development updates since 2012, and the project was presumed to be cancelled. However, the project has since been re-initiated by the original developers.
In April 2020, Cambridge Energy (CE) announced that the company was working to finalize natural gas pipeline and transportation agreements, in addition to LNG supply agreements. CE also announced that developers expect to submit the FERC application in the first quarter of 2021. Meanwhile, they continue working to complete financing, which has been delayed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its associated travel restrictions. Developers also pushed back the startup date for the project to the fourth quarter of 2026.
Cambridge Energy plans to carry out the CE FLNG project over two phases. The first phase will include the construction and installation of pipelines and marine facilities required by the involved FLNG vessels. The first 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, each vessel contianing a single liquefaction train.
