A small local company with a large global impact
As America turned from the #1 global gas importer to a gas exporter, the seeds of Cameron LNG began to take shape. Our partners understood the changing business environment and almost immediately began formulating a dual-purpose import/export terminal. They secured the purchase of a 432-acre tract of land directly north and adjacent to the existing import terminal, making for a total footprint of 502 acres.
In October of 2014, Cameron LNG officially came into existence when our partners committed an estimated $10 billion to construct a liquefaction facility. Construction began immediately and continues today.
When Train No. 1 is operational in 2019, we will be able to liquefy domestically-produced natural gas for export as well as import liquefied natural gas (LNG). Our 3-Train project has an authorized annual export capacity of 14.95 Mtpa that will have many benefits both locally and globally.
By July of 2016, Cameron LNG had received all the regulatory approvals needed to expand the base 3-Train project. The “Expansion Project”, if undertaken would include two additional liquefaction Trains (Trains No. 4 and No. 5) and up to two additional full containment LNG storage tanks.
The Expansion Project is capable of increasing LNG production capacity by 9.97 million metric tons per annum (Mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG), or 1.41 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd). If constructed, Cameron LNG's export capacity will be 24.92 Mtpa, or 3.53 Bcfd.
Cameron LNG's activities represent a significant investment in U.S. energy infrastructure that has created jobs, helped support the economy, helped small businesses grow and helped America's trading partners in Europe and Asia.
