Houston-based Tellurian Inc. plans to raise $100 million through a public stock offering to help pay for the engineering work on the company's planned natural gas export facility and associated pipeline near Lake Charles.

The company is offering 10 million shares at $10 per share. The offering is expected to close Dec. 12.

In November, Tellurian announced that Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals Inc. agreed to design and build Tellurian's Driftwood LNG, a proposed liquefied natural gas facility, for $15.2 billion.
