LNG export facility planned in Louisiana

Grand Isle LNG expected to be online in 2026

Grand Isle LNG, a Deepwater platform-based export facility, expects to start delivering in 2026.

The proposed facility will be 13 miles south of Grand Isle, Louisiana in Plaquemines Parish and have a modular design.

Located in federal waters of the West Delta Blocks in depths ranging from 68 to 72 feet, construction of the facility is planned in two phases. When complete, the plant will consist of a crew quarters platform, two gas treatment platforms, two 2.1 million tons per annum-MTPA liquefaction platforms, two loading platforms, one thermal oxidizer platform, and two 155,000 cubic meter storage and offloading vessels.

Because the Deepwater Port licensing application will be sanctioned by MARAD, it will go through a rigorous and comprehensive review by numerous federal and state agencies that will ensure the planned facility is compliant with all environmental and safety requirements.

Grand Isle’s management team represents experienced engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs with more than 120 years combined work experience in Oil and Gas development, including offshore platform finance, construction, and operations.

“Significant benefits of the proposed natural gas processing and LNG export facility are that it will provide affordable, clean energy, and generate long-term, good paying jobs throughout the Gulf South and beyond for years to come,” said Grand Isle LNG CEO Robert Shivers, D. Eng.
