Among the largest LNG terminals in the world, the Golden Pass LNG Terminal is capable of accommodating 15.6 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas per year, or approximately 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, through its dual berth ship docks. With two processing trains and advanced vaporization systems, the terminal can send out 2.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day into the Golden Pass pipeline to meet the needs of customers, providing them with maximum flexibility.
Golden Pass LNG's five storage tanks are each large enough to hold the volume of 62 olympic-size swimming pools. The tanks were constructed with 50 million pounds of steel and 5,000 valves. The Golden Pass berth area is large enough to hold about 77 football fields.
The Port Arthur area and Sabine-Neches Waterway serve as an excellent location for an LNG terminal, as it is one of only a few deepwater ports along the Gulf Coast suitable for LNG carriers.
The 69-mile Golden Pass Pipeline is capable of processing an average of 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. It connects to major Gulf Coast markets including the Houston Ship Channel and major interstate pipelines extending into the northeastern and midwestern United States.
