Cameron LNG wins additional non-FTA export approval

Sempra Energy informed that Cameron LNG has been granted authorization by the U.S. Department of Energy to export additional 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day to non-FTA countries from its export project under construction in Hackberry, Louisiana.

With the latest DOE authorization, the project’s export capacity will increase to 24.92 million tons per annum, Sempra Energy said in its statement on Monday.

Earlier this year, Cameron LNG received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to site, construct and operate the proposed expansion project, which will include up to two additional liquefaction trains and one additional full containment LNG storage tank.

Currently, the construction is underway on the first phase of the $10 billion Cameron LNG liquefaction project, including trains 1-3.

The facility is expected to commence operations during 2018, with the first full year of operations in 2019, the company said.

The proposed addition of the fourth and fifth liquefaction train and the fifth storage tank is subject to completing the commercial agreement, securing all necessary consents and approvals, obtaining financing and reaching a final investment decision.

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