Galveston LNG Bunker Port (GLBP), a joint venture between Pilot LNG and Seapath Group, has filed applications with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to construct and operate its proposed small-scale natural gas liquefaction facility on Shoal Point in Texas City, Texas.

Located in the heart of the Galveston Bay/Greater Houston port complex, the GLBP project will be the region’s first dedicated LNG bunker terminal.

Galveston LNG Bunker Port has now filed key regulatory applications with relevant government agencies, including the US Army Corps of Engineers and the United States Coast Guard.

The latest application for the proposed project covers two natural gas liquefaction trains capable of producing approximately 600,000 gallons per day of LNG; two 3-million-gallon full containment LNG storage tanks; natural gas liquids and refrigerant storage; feed gas pre-treatment facilities; a bunker vessel loading berth and associated marine and loading facilities.

‘The Galveston LNG Bunker Port project continues to meet its milestones, and we are very excited to announce that the necessary permitting applications have been submitted,’ said Shaun Davison, Chief Development Officer of Pilot LNG.

‘We are confident that we will meet the rigorous requirements of State & Local permitting authorities to ensure that the project is delivered on-time and will meet the ever-growing demand for clean fuel supply in the Galveston Bay, and US Gulf Coast region by the end of 2026.’

As previously reported, Pilot LNG and Seapath Group signed a project development agreement in September of 2023 that provides a framework for the development, technical design, permitting and marketing of the proposed liquefaction project, which is estimated to come online in late 2026.

The final investment decision to proceed with construction will be contingent on completing required commercial agreements, acquiring all necessary permits and approvals, and securing financing commitments.
