Delfin LNG

Delfin LNG is a brownfield Deepwater Port requiring minimal additional infrastructure investment to support up to four FLNG Vessels producing up to 13 million tonnes of LNG per annum. Delfin purchased the UTOS pipeline, the largest natural gas pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico, in 2014 and submitted its Deepwater Port license application in 2015. Delfin LNG received a positive Record of Decision from the Maritime Administration (MARAD) and approval from the Department of Energy for longterm exports of LNG to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement with the United States for up to 13 MTPA.

Avocet LNG

Delfin owns a second pipeline system (Grand Chenier) which can be used for either

  • A second Deep Water Port (Avocet LNG) or a Delfin LNG expansion for an additional 2 FLNGVs of up to 8 MTPA in total; or
  • An increased feedgas supply option for the Delfin LNG Deep Water Port allowing Delfin LNG to be fed by two pipeline systems, giving increased gas supply flexibility and security for the Delfin FLNG Vessels

Avocet LNG’s MARAD permitting process will be significantly cheaper and more efficient as the company can leverage the Delfin LNG’s successful permitting work

The GrandChenier pipeline system connects to major interstate pipelines providing access to abundant pipeline-quality natural gas

Cedar LNG and additional North American Projects

The two most important innovations of the last 20 years in the global gas market have been the shale gas revolution and the emergence of floating LNG technologies (regasification and liquefaction). Delfin combines these two innovations to offer the LNG market a low cost, simple and flexible LNG supply solution. Since our FLNG Vessels are pure liquefiers that can be used to liquefy “pipeline quality feedgas” we can use this FLNG technology to develop additional projects in North American by capitalizing on the abundant and low-cost shale gas supply around the continent.

Cedar LNG
Delfin Midstream has been a partner in the Cedar LNG project, led by the Haisla Nation, together with Pacific Traverse Energy (PTE), a Vancouver based energy infrastructure development company. The partners have successfully executed the pre-FEED phase enabling the project to enter the FEED phase. Delfin Midstream has been mainly responsible for the development and design of the FLNG solution for the project, obviously leveraging from the team’s past FLNG experiences and the FLNG solution as engineered for the Delfin LNG project. In June 2021 Pembina Pipeline Corporation became the Haisla Nation’s development partner. Delfin Midstream has divested its shareholding but maintains an economic interest and continues to support the Cedar LNG project as a technical advisor.
