The project will use the commercially proven and reliable Air Products liquefaction process technology. The project also includes LNG storage facilities, a marine berth and a bi-directional natural gas pipeline. During liquefaction, the system will be capable of processing 450 mmcfd or 3 million tons of LNG per year.
The natural gas will be sent via an approximately 31-mile bi-directional pipeline (up to 24 inches in diameter) to the interstate natural gas pipeline system of Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline (M&NE) at its existing compressor station at Baileyville, Maine.
- Liquefaction production of 450 mmcfd
- Natural water depth of 50 feet MLLW – no dredging required

- Initial LNG carrier size range from 70,000 m3 to 165,000 m3
- Expected loading of 30 LNG cargoes per year
- Water bath regasification units of 100 mmcfd
- Bi-directional gas pipeline lateral of approximately 31 miles (up to 24-inch diameter)
- No NGL extraction
