Project description

Bayou Casotte Energy LLC, a wholly owned Chevron subsidiary, filed for regulatory approval with FERC for the Casotte Landing Project in 2005, and the US governmental agency granted it in early 2007. Proposed for Jackson Country, Miss., the LNG terminal was to be located directly next to Chevron's existing Pascagoula Refinery.

The Cassotte Landing LNG Project called for the fabrication of LNG storage tanks, vaporization equipment, refinery interconnects, gas-processing units and tie-ins to existing pipelines. Regassified LNG would have been sent to the Southeast US through four existing pipelines: Gulfstream Natural Gas System, Destin Pipeline Co., Gulf South Pipeline Co., and Chandeleur Pipe Line Co.

With an anticipated initial processing capacity of 1.3 Bcf/d of natural gas, the Cassotte Landing LNG Project was expected to work in synergy with Chevron's Pascagoula Refinery.

Chevron has decided to to pursue the project.
