On June 19, 2015, Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company, LLC (Gulf Liquefaction), Gulf LNG Energy, LLC (Gulf Energy), and Gulf LNG Pipeline LLC (Gulf Pipeline) filed an application pursuant to section 3(a) of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) and Part 153 of the Commission's regulations, requesting authorization to construct and operate the Gulf LNG Liquefaction Project (Project) at Gulf Energy's liquefied natural gas terminal located near Pascagoula, Jackson County, Mississippi. The Project consists of new natural gas liquefaction and export facilities. Additionally, within the same application, Gulf Pipeline requested, pursuant to section 7(c) of the NGA and Part 157 of the Commission's regulations, to make modifications to the terminal's sendout pipeline to allow for bi-directional flow. These facilities will enable Gulf Liquefaction to liquefy and export about 11 million metric tons of LNG per year.
