Monkey Island LNG is located in close proximity to major natural gas pipelines, one of which connects directly to the Henry Hub, 15 additional pipelines, and the rapidly expanding and prolific Haynesville Shale gas basin. Because of its close proximity to gas supply, the Monkey Island LNG location will incur little or no pipeline connection costs to liquefy gas very inexpensively.
The Haynesville Shale basin straddles Eastern Texas and the Northwestern Louisiana border and is the third largest shale play in the U.S. It contains up to 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas with a recent significant uptick in drilling and production. The production basin is close to the project site and connects directly to Monkey Island via existing natural gas pipelines.
