In February of 2016, TC Offshore LLC filed an application with FERC to abandon, by sale to Avocet LNG, LLC, its Grand Chenier System for use by Avocet as part of a proposed Deepwater Port LNG export project. According to the application, Avocet’s proposed project would involve a mooring system to be built in federal waters near the terminus points of the Grand Chenier System and floating liquefaction natural gas vessels (FLNGVs), located at the moorings. Avocet will reverse the natural gas flow to a southerly direction, towards the offshore mooring sites and the FLNGVs, where the gas would be liquefied, stored, and ultimately loaded onto carriers for export. Avocet is owned by Fairwood Peninsula Energy, which is also the parent company of Delfin LNG LLC, sponsor of a Deepwater Port LNG export project for offshore Louisiana.[1]

There have been no development updates since 2016 and the project is presumed to be cancelled
