Delfin Seeks More Time to Build US Gulf of Mexico LNG Export Plant

Delfin told FERC the LNG market “is strong with the current geopolitical importance of the Ukraine invasion and the initiative of the European Union to increase deliveries of U.S LNG to Europe.”

Delfin LNG has asked federal regulators to extend the amount of time it has to put the onshore part of its proposed Gulf of Mexico floating LNG export project off Louisiana into service until September 2023.

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said on July 21 that Delfin sought the extension on July 15.

Delfin is one of several North American LNG export projects that delayed decisions to start construction in recent years in part because coronavirus demand destruction made customers unwilling to sign long-term deals needed to finance the multibillion-dollar facilities.
