FERC has approved Cheniere Energy’s request to use additional temporary workspace for construction of the Corpus Christi Pipeline Project.
Cheniere will utilize a 70 foot x 278 foot (0.45 acre) area to facilitate more staging of excavated saturated soil near the Green’s Bayou drainage ditch at approximately mile post 0.8,” Kandilarya Baraka, Environmental Project Manager with FERC, said. “This area occurs within land previously reviewed and cleared for the CCPL right-of-way. This area was used in the past as agricultural land but is currently not being farmed and vacant vegetated land.”
The Corpus Christi Pipeline is a 23-mile long, 48-inch diameter natural gas pipeline that will be located in San Patricio County, Texas. The pipeline will begin near Sinton, Texas and will run southeasterly along a corridor that will enable interconnection points with interstate and intrastate natural gas transmission pipelines in South Texas, including Tennessee Gas Pipeline, Southcross, Kinder Morgan Tejas Pipeline, Transcontinental Gas Pipeline and Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America. The line will end at the proposed Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC plant near Corpus Christi, Texas.
