Cameron Liquefaction Project Moves Forward

U.S. FERC has prepared a final environmental impact statement for the Cameron liquefaction project, proposed by Cameron LNG and Cameron Interstate Pipeline.

The project is proposed in Cameron, Calcasieu, and Beauregard Parishes, Louisiana, and would provide Cameron the capability to export about 12 million tons of liquefied natural gas per year. Cameron would construct three separate systems that liquefy natural gas; one 160,000-cubic-meter, full-containment LNG storage tank; refrigerant make-up and condensate product storage; a truck loading/unloading area; one marine work dock; minor modifications to existing terminal facilities; 21 miles of 42-inch-diameter pipeline; one 56,820-horsepower compressor station; and ancillary facilities.

To begin construction, Cameron LNG will require a final order from FERC, a final investment decision to proceed by each party of the project’s joint-venture, final permit authorizations and the satisfaction of other customary conditions.

Octavio M.C. Simoes, president of Sempra LNG said: “The receipt of the Final Environmental Impact Statement today represents a significant milestone that moves our Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project another step closer to breaking ground later this year.

“We are grateful for the consistent support Cameron LNG has received from federal, state and local officials, as well as from the local community. We look forward to the creation of thousands of new jobs and the economic boost our project will provide to the U.S. and the state of Louisiana.”
