TransCanada Corporation placed its Cameron Access project into service in Southwest Louisiana, a $300 million, the pipeline is capable of transporting 800,000 dekatherms a day to the Cameron LNG export facility.

Cameron Access involved improvements to existing pipeline, construction of a new compressor station and the addition of 27 miles (43 kilometers) of 36-inch diameter greenfield pipeline, TransCanada said in a statement.

The Cameron LNG facility currently under construction is scheduled to go into service at the end of 2019.

Speaking of the Cameron Access project completion, Stanley Chapman III, TransCanada’s executive vice president and the president of U.S. Natural Gas Pipelines, noted the project will boost the connectivity of domestic natural gas producers to U.S. Gulf Coast LNG export market.

“Additionally, LNG export projects such as Cameron Access will help reduce global carbon emissions by allowing emerging markets to displace coal-fired power generation with clean-burning natural gas,” Champan said.

The Cameron Access project expands TransCanada’s natural gas transmission network that covers more than 91,900 kilometers.
