ChevronTexaco files to build US LNG facility

ChevronTexaco has submitted an application with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to build a US Gulf Coast liquefied natural gas terminal. The company said its Port Pelican project in the Gulf of Mexico would consist of LNG receiving, storage and regasification facilities, and pipeline interconnections to existing pipeline. The first phase of the project is slated to start service in 2006. ChevronTexaco said it planned to construct phase one of the project as an offshore facility with an initial design capacity of about 800 million cubic feet of gas per day. Phase two would expand the terminal to a capacity of 1.6 billion cubic feet per day.
