Liquefied Natural Gas : Glenfarne seeks 5 more years to build Louisiana Magnolia LNG export plant

09/14/2020 | 12:41pm EDT

Sept 14 (Reuters) - Units of Glenfarne Group LLC and Kinder Morgan Inc asked federal regulators for five more years to complete the Magnolia LNG export plant and associated gas pipeline expansions, according to filings made available on Monday.

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved construction of Magnolia LNG and related pipeline expansions in April 2016.

That approval required the companies to complete the project within five years, by April 2021.

Glenfarne, which acquired the Magnolia project from LNG Ltd of Australia in May 2020, said "unforeseeable developments in the global LNG market have affected Magnolia LNG’s ability to enter into long-term LNG offtake contracts ... critical to securing project financing and achieving (final investment decision)," referring to purchase agreements for gas.

Those "unforeseeable developments" included global energy demand destruction from government lockdowns to stop the spread of coronavirus and disruptions caused by the U.S.-China trade war.

Glenfarne has said it expects to decide late next year whether to build the Magnolia plant and the Texas LNG facility it is developing in Texas. If the company decides to build the projects, they could enter service around 2025.

Several developers have put off decisions to build LNG projects in North America over the past year due to uncertainty about demand as the pandemic and other factors have cut energy consumption.

Even before the pandemic, gas prices were already trading at their lowest in years, making customers hesitant to sign long-term deals needed to finance multibillion-dollar LNG projects because the world was already awash in gas after a record number of export plants entered service in 2019.

Magnolia is designed to produce 8.8 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG or 1.2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. One billion cubic feet is enough gas to supply about 5 million U.S. homes for a day.
