LNG tanks pass important test
PASCAGOULA — A test of a temporary ventilation system for the two tanks of the Gulf LNG Energy plant under construction in Pascagoula went as expected.
A company spokesman tells the Mississippi Press a smoke test was conducted April 11.
Bill Baerg of the El Paso Corporation said the test was conducted on the $1.1-billion liquefied natural gas terminal’s storage tanks, which will hold one million barrels each of LNG.
Construction on the facility began in Feb. 2008 and completion is scheduled for late 2011.
The facility will process LNG shipped from foreign producers, reheat the liquefied natural gas into a gaseous state and pump it by pipeline into national transmission systems.
