Commonwealth LNG, LLC proposes to construct and operate a new LNG export facility and accompanying natural gas pipeline (Docket No. CP19-502-000) on the west side of the Calcasieu Ship Channel at its entrance to the Gulf of Mexico.  The LNG export facility would consist of six natural gas liquefaction trains (with nominal liquefaction and production capacities of 1.4 million tonnes per annum each), six LNG storage tanks (with storage capacities of 40,000 cubic meters each), and one marine berth capable of accommodating LNG carriers with capacities up to 216,000 cubic meters.  Commonwealth would construct a 30-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline from the LNG export facility, extending 3.04 miles north to interconnect with existing natural gas pipelines within Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
