Public Notice         Project Plans          Dredged Material Management Plan

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to expand the existing SPLNG Terminal, to add a third marine berth, and supporting facilities to load LNG vessels for export.  The new berth is proposed to be dredged from a site previously used as a dredge material placement area (DMPA), to a depth of -46.37 feet below Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).  The berth is proposed to be constructed with a 3:1 slope.  Portions of the berth would be protected from erosion using filter rock layer, rip rap, or other suitable means of stabilization.  Approximately 3.6 million cubic yards of dredge material will be removed via hydraulic and mechanical means, to create the berth.  The majority of the dredge activities will occur within the State of Louisiana.  However, a small portion of the dredge area will extend into the State of Texas.  The proposed project will impact 27.05 acres of emergent wetlands, 0.61 acres of scrub-shrub wetlands, and 49.23 acres of open water. 

Support facilities will include additional piping, piperacks, utilities and tie-ins to existing SPLNG infrastructure.  One jetty approach trestle, roadway, pipeway, outfall, mooring and breasting dolphins, and loading platform with transfer arms will also be constructed.  No additional liquefaction facilities are proposed. 

Dredge Material Management Plan (DMMP):  The applicant proposes to place 3.6 million cubic yards of dredged material into the Louisiana Point DMPA, located waterward of Louisiana Point for beneficial use (BU) of dredged material.  The intent of placement would be for the material to create a feeder berm that would passively restore sediment into the marine system.
