Background

G2 LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG export terminal in Louisiana, United States.[2] G2 filed a Free Trade Agreement / non-Free Trade Agreement license to export application with the US Department of Energy in March of 2015, and was granted the Free Trade Agreement export license in July of 2015. The formal application to the Federal Energy and Regulatory Commission (FERC) was filed in the 2nd quarter of 2016. A decision on the non- Free Trade Agreement export license is pending. The $11 billion project, if constructed, would have been located on the Calcasieu River Ship Channel in Cameron Parish, Louisiana; G2 says the terminal would potentially service customers in Asia, Europe, India, and the Caribbean.[1] The G2 LNG Chairman, Charles Roemer, is a former Louisiana governor.

Despite having been proposed in 2015, as of August 2019 developers had not yet filed formal applications with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)[3], nor had developers announced any financing decisions.[4]

There have been no development updates in over four years, and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
