While the final design of the LNG facility on Lelu Island is still to be determined, it is envisioned that the initial phase of the facility would include:
- Two liquefaction plants: A series of process equipment situated in a line (called “trains”) that acts as a large refrigerator to convert natural gas into LNG by chilling it to -162 degrees Celsius.
- Two LNG storage tanks: Stores LNG at atmospheric pressure prior to being transferred onto LNG carriers.
- Powerplant: Provides electricity for ancillary needs.
- Jetty trestle and marine terminal: Links Lelu Island to water deep enough to accommodate an LNG carrier (average draft over 11.25 metres).
- Two-lane bridge: Two-lane bridge linking Port Edward with Lelu Island.
- Auxiliary buildings: The facility would also include administrative and maintenance buildings to service and oversee the operational aspects of the LNG facility.
