HOUSTON, TX, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 07/01/2015 – – SCT&E LNG, Inc. has hired Proes, an international marine and environmental consultancy contractor, to complete the marine infrastructure studies for its LNG project on Monkey Island, Cameron Parish, Louisiana. As one of its initial tasks, Proes will develop a Waterway Suitability Assessment (WSA) to submit to the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Furthermore, Proes will leverage its significant LNG and marine infrastructure experience and work with the SCT&E LNG environmental team to advance the FERC pre-filing process.
Greg Michaels, Chairman and CEO of SCT&E LNG, states, “This is an important next step for our project as we have started preparing for the FERC pre-filing process. The FERC’s review process is, among other things, designed to address siting of marine facilities and fulfill its responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).”
Mr. Luis del Pozo, CEO of Proes, states, “Proes is honored to be a part of this important United States infrastructure project, and we look forward to working with the SCT&E LNG team. We have evaluated and worked on LNG project sites all over the world, and the project location on Monkey Island has unique characteristics that make it one of the strongest sites for the development of a large-scale LNG facility.”
Greg Michaels continues, “Over the next forty-five days, we are scheduled to select our natural gas liquefaction technology provider and engineering contractor. These decisions support our current schedule of starting the FERC pre-filing process in the second half of 2015.”
