Project Details

  • Operator: Delfin LNG LLC
  • Current capacity: 2 billion cubic feet per day
  • Proposed capacity:
  • Length: 30 miles / 50 km
  • Status: Operating
  • Start Year: 1978[1]

Background

The UTOS Gas Pipeline is owned and operated by Delfin LNG LLC. Delfin acquired the pipeline from Enbridge in 2014 and will repurpose it to serve its planned offshore floating LNG facility.[2][3]

In November 2013 Delfin LNG filed an application with the Department of Energy (DOE) seeking to construct, own, and operate a deepwater port with floating liquefaction and export facilities, and related onshore facilities, in West Cameron Block 167 in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 30 miles offshore of Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The facility would produce 657.5 Bcf/yr of natural gas to export to countries with whom the U.S. does not have free trade agreements.[4] It would consist of four semi-permanently moored floating LNG vessels, each capable of storing 210,000 cubic meters of LNG, and with a production capacity of 3.3 mtpa of the chilled fuel each.[5]
