Woodside LNG Project Moving Ahead.

Australian LNG player Woodside officially submitted permit applications this week in Los Angeles for its Ocean Way LNG project.

According to published reports:

OceanWay involves two delivery buoys more than 32km offshore from Los Angeles International Airport, with twin underwater pipelines to deliver gas to shore.

LNG will be turned back into gaseous form on a specially equipped ship before being piped directly to shore, avoiding the need to construct a permanent plant. When not required for ship unloading, the buoys will rest on the sea floor. The initial plant would be designed to process 400,000 cubic feet of gas a day but OceanWay could be expanded to 1.2 billion c/f a day if required.
