The proposed Port Arthur Pipeline Louisiana Connector (PAPLC) project will provide an additional, reliable solution to transport natural gas as a feed gas source to the proposed Port Arthur Liquefaction Project.
The PAPLC project will follow a route, mostly collocated with other pipelines through Cameron, Calcasieu, Beauregard, Allen, Evangeline and St. Landry Parishes in Louisiana as well as Orange and Jefferson Counties in Texas.
The PAPLC project will be owned and operated by Port Arthur Pipeline with a total operating capacity of approximately 2.0 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd).
PAPLC initiated the pre-filing process with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in March 2017. The project submitted a FERC application in October 2017 and received authorization in April 2019.
Development of the Port Arthur Liquefaction Project and the PAPLC project is contingent upon completing the required commercial agreements, securing all necessary permits and approvals, obtaining financing and incentives, achieving other customary conditions, reaching a final investment decision and other factors associated with the investments.
