Company Overview

Monkey Island LNG was established by Southern California Telephone Company, a successful twenty-six year, privately-held United States public utility company. At its corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas, Monkey Island LNG’s executive team is developing a natural gas liquefaction facility and LNG export terminal on Monkey Island in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The facility will utilize cryogenic technology to liquefy approximately 2.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas to produce approximately 15.75 mtpa of LNG for exportation globally.

Monkey Island LNG’s world-class energy professionals are comprised of over 90 years of EPC, LNG, and natural gas experience, along with creating and developing successful businesses in the energy and utility industries. Once operational, the Monkey Island LNG facility will receive natural gas via pipeline into the gas treatment facility where it will be cleaned, liquefied, and loaded from the LNG storage tanks onto LNG carriers berthed alongside Monkey Island for distribution to customers. 

“Our facility will have a direct and positive impact on the global environment by delivering clean burning and sustainable energy to developing nations at a price they can afford.” 

Greg Michaels - Chairman and CEO

The 246-acre project site in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, is strategically located on a deep water port along the Calcasieu Ship Channel. The location is approximately 2 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. The project site has additional marine access on the Cameron Loop along Monkey Island’s northern bank, providing flexibility during construction and after the facility is operational.  Additionally, Monkey Island LNG lies near the heart of one of the most robust natural gas transportation networks in North America. These pipeline networks are directly connected to Henry Hub and the prolific Haynesville Shale natural gas basin. 

Monkey Island LNG will have three liquefaction trains, each utilizing the Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. Propane Pre-Cooled Mixed Refrigerant technology (APCI C3MR™) to liquefy natural gas at a production rate of approximately 5.25 mtpa per train. The project design calls for two LNG storage tanks on the Monkey Island site. Each LNG storage tank will have a capacity of approximately 180,000 cubic meters. 


Global natural gas demand growth is driven largely by emerging economies and governments that seek natural gas to meet their growing energy needs for power generation, industrial and residential use, and transportation (including marine, rail, and vehicles). As the world transitions to clean-burning natural gas in lieu of carbon-intensive and dirty energy sources, such as coal and fuel oil, ExxonMobil is forecasting LNG demand to increase 170% in the coming decades. The Monkey Island LNG facility will support this expanding LNG demand by providing low cost and efficient natural gas liquefaction services to global buyers in 2024 and beyond.
