About the project
Tellurian Inc., through its subsidiaries Driftwood LNG LLC and Driftwood Pipeline LLC, has applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to develop a pipeline to deliver gas to the Driftwood LNG facility near Lake Charles, Louisiana. The proposed 96-mile feed gas pipeline would deliver to the facility an annual average of 4 Bcfd of natural gas. The project, which originally planned to begin construction in 2018, includes 13 interconnects and requires the construction of three new compressor stations.
In June 2020, Tellurian announced its decision to push the start of construction on its $27 billion Driftwood LNG project to 2021 and is reconsidering the need to build its $4.2 billion Permian Global Access Pipeline to serve the Driftwood facility.
The project is expected to employ approximately 6,400 skilled craftsmen during the construction phase alone - many of whom are Local 798 members - and will support nearly 400 permanent positions once complete.
