Cameron LNG files for expansion project approval with FERC

Cameron LNG files expansion project approval with FERC

Cameron LNG said it has initiated the pre-filing review with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the planned expansion of the company’s existing three-train liquefaction export project in Hackberry, Louisiana.  

The expansion project is expected to include two additional liquefaction trains (trains No. 4 and No. 5) and one additional full containment LNG storage tank (tank No. 5) capable of increasing LNG production capacity by 9.97 million metric tons per annum or 1.41 billion cubic feet per day.  If approved, Cameron LNG’s export capacity will be 24.92 Mtpa, or 3.53 Bcfd, the company said in a statement.

Cameron LNG filed a permit application with the U. S. Department of Energy for authorization to export the LNG produced from the proposed expansion project to all current and future Free Trade Agreement countries.  In the coming months, Cameron LNG also expects to submit to the DOE an application for authorization to export LNG produced from the expansion project to all current and future non-FTA countries.

The expansion project will be located on land within the existing Cameron LNG terminal site, is expected to utilize a similar liquefaction train design and will include a full containment LNG tank consistent with the existing tanks.

Cameron LNG is a joint venture owned by affiliates of Sempra Energy, GDF Suez, Mitsui & Co. and Japan LNG Investment, a joint venture formed by affiliates of Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.
