Commonwealth LNG receives notice of schedule for environmental review
Commonwealth LNG announced that the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. The Project encompasses the construction of one liquefied natural gas plant, including six gas liquefaction trains and appurtenant facilities. Each train will have a liquefaction design capacity of approximately 1.4 million metric tonnes per annum (MTPA) for a total nominal liquefaction capacity of 8.4 MTPA.
Located on the west side of the Calcasieu Ship Channel, near the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico, the Project will include six LNG storage tanks each with a capacity of 40,000 m3, one marine loading berth capable of loading LNG carriers up to a capacity of 216,000 m3, and a 3.04-mile long, 30-inch diameter Pipeline that will connect the LNG Facility with existing intrastate and interstate pipelines for the purpose of supplying gas to the Project.

Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
