Liquefaction helps the future look bright.
As a result of the improved outlook for domestic natural gas production, in 2011 Cameron LNG proposed adding natural gas liquefaction and export facilities to its existing terminal in Hackberry, Louisiana.
The new liquefaction facilities will use many of Cameron LNG’s existing facilities, and will be comprised of three liquefaction trains. Construction on the project began in October 2014, with commercial operations expected to begin in 2019.
Cameron LNG has obtained approval from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export up to 14.95 Mtpa, or approximately 2.1 Bcf per day, of domestically produced LNG to all current and future Free Trade Agreement countries and non-Free Trade Agreement countries, including those in Europe or Asia. Cameron LNG received authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to site, construct and operate the natural gas liquefaction and export facility in 2014.
This liquefaction project will provide economic benefits to the U.S., create jobs, support small businesses and provide America's trading partners with supplies of clean-burning natural gas. This project has strong support from the community, both current U.S. Senators in Louisiana, the Governor of Louisiana, the region's state and local officials and other community leaders.
