US based RES has supplied more than 800 acres of wetlands to make up for those damaged in the construction of the Sabine Pass natural gas export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
The wetlands had to be provided to receive permit approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and other federal and state regulatory bodies.
The firm was selected to provide restored, enhanced and conserved wetlands for the facility during all three phases of project permitting.
Sabine Pass Liquefaction project involves construction of six liquefaction trains, each having a nominal production capacity of around 4.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).
“Cheniere is dedicated to restoring and preserving the marsh environment and coastline in southwest Louisiana.”
The terminal for the project will be built on more than 1,000 acres of land along the Sabine Pass River.
Owned by Cheniere Energy, the project presently has an infrastructure of five LNG storage tanks with capacity of nearly 16.9 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe), two docks with a capacity to accommodate vessels of up to 266,000mÂ³ and vaporisers with regasification capacity of approximately 4.0 Bcf/d.
Cheniere Energy Health, Safety, and Environmental unit vice president Catherine Rourke said: “Cheniere is dedicated to restoring and preserving the marsh environment and coastline in southwest Louisiana.
“Part of Cheniere’s success can be attributed to working with RES. They are a high quality wetland mitigation provider that works closely with regulating agencies to provide successful mitigation solutions.”
