The Energy Web Atlas’ Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and US Gas Processing (GP) map is a comprehensive source of facility and project data. The web-based platform allows users to access the latest project data (including facility status and ownership details), detailed pipeline information, vessel/shipping information and more.
The platform serves as a single reference source for all LNG projects across the globe plus gas processing plants within the United States allowing users to interrogate project information, export and manipulate data, produce production quality bespoke maps, and create custom reports. .
The ESRI-based platform is updated in real time by a dedicated support team, thereby ensuring that the latest LNG and GP data—regardless of project location or status—is just a click away.
The EWA LNG map is an evolution of Petroleum Economist's Interactive World LNG Map, which began tracking LNG projects around the globe in 2012. The US gas plant map and data is an evolution of Hydrocarbon Processing’s US Gas Processing Plant Directory, which began tracking plant data in 2014.

There's never been a more exciting time to be in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry. Tellurian expects global gas demand to increase faster than any other fossil fuel, as consumers look for more reliable sources of energy with fewer particulate and carbon emissions.
As a result, the market could require new liquefaction facilities to supply an additional 251 mtpa of LNG to meet incremental demand by 2035. Assuming LNG delivered to the market is 85% of installed liquefaction capacity after taking into account planned and unplanned maintenance, operational outages, and fuel used during transport, we believe approximately 296 mtpa of additional liquefaction capacity will need to be constructed to meet this call on LNG, or approximately 21 mtpa per year from 2022 to 2035.
We are happy to be a part of that growth and are building a business in an effort to help improve the world's air quality by delivering clean, low-cost, flexible and reliable LNG to growing markets. Our first proposed project, Driftwood LNG, is a 26 mtpa export project targeted to produce first LNG in 2022, and it is driven by our Tellurian colleagues who have unmatched experience and proven results, some having worked in the industry for over 50 years. The schedule of operations for Driftwood LNG, from 2022 to 2025, will only enable Driftwood LNG to provide a portion of the expected need for liquefaction facilities worldwide, and we expect Driftwood LNG will be a competitive supplier to the growing global natural gas market.
We encourage you to explore this World LNG Map Web Application, which is full of information on existing as well as proposed projects. The Petroleum Economist Ltd has done a terrific job pulling this data together.
President and CEO
Tellurian was founded by Charif Souki and Martin Houston and is led by President and CEO Meg Gentle. The employees and contractors of Tellurian are experienced industry experts developing low-cost liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects along the United States Gulf Coast. The team intends to deliver results using a repeatable and simple design, off-the-shelf equipment and multiple production units to enhance reliability. The team has been delivering cost-leading LNG projects for more than 50 years. They are focusing their collective knowledge and expertise to establish a new global standard and intend to deliver low cost LNG to customers from Driftwood LNG, a proposed 26 million tonnes per annum liquefied natural gas export facility expected to become operational in 2022.
LNG | Liquified natural gas is a clear, colourless and non-toxic liquid which forms when natural gas cooled to around -162°C (-260°F), the boiling point of its main constituent methane (CH4), so that it becomes liquid. The process, known as liquefaction, reduces its volume by a factor of 600, making it more convenient and less dangerous to store and transport. Natural gas is liquefied in a liquefaction plant, transported and stored chilled and under slight pressure, before being converted back into a gas at a regasification plant. In its liquid state, LNG will not ignite. The regasified product is then piped to homes, businesses and industries where it is burnt for heat or to generate electricity. LNG is now also emerging as a cost-competitive and cleaner fuel, especially for shipping and heavy-duty road transport.
Natural-gas processing is a complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas. Natural-gas processing begins at the well head. The composition of the raw natural gas extracted from producing wells depends on the type, depth, and location of the underground deposit and the geology of the area. Oil and natural gas are often found together in the same reservoir. The natural gas produced from oil wells is generally classified as associated-dissolved, meaning that the natural gas is associated with or dissolved in crude oil. Natural gas production absent any association with crude oil is classified as “non-associated.” In 2009, 89 percent of U.S. wellhead production of natural gas was non-associated. Natural-gas processing plants purify raw natural gas by removing common contaminants such as water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Some of the substances which contaminate natural gas have economic value and are further processed or sold. A fully operational plant delivers pipeline-quality dry natural gas that can be used as fuel by residential, commercial and industrial consumers.
