Background

G2 LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG export terminal in Louisiana, United States.[4] 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. The $11 billion project will be constructed on the Calcasieu River Ship Channel in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The terminal will potentially service customers in Asia, Europe, India, and the Caribbean.[3] 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)[5], nor had developers announced any financing decisions.[6]

In May 2021, developers published a press release on the project's status, citing a recently completed pre-FEED (Front End Engineering Design) report. As a result of the report, developers committed to pushing the project forward, which will be online as early as 2027. If completed, it would be the world's first LNG export and industrial gas production complex promising net-zero carbon emissions from upstream to dockside.[1]
