Connecting the Gulf of Mexico to the World
Cameron LNG is a liquefied natural gas terminal situated on an industrial-zoned site along the Calcasieu Channel in Hackberry, Louisiana. It is located 18 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and within 35 miles of five major interstate pipelines. The terminal is connected to these pipelines via the 36-mile Cameron Interstate Pipeline.
Construction on the Cameron LNG regasification terminal started in August 2005 and commercial operations began in July 2009.
The LNG receipt terminal has two marine berths capable of accommodating Q-Flex sized LNG ships, three LNG storage tanks of 480,000 cubic meters, and vaporization capability for regasification services of 1.5 Bcf per day.
Cameron LNG has access to a deep ship channel close to the shoreline and is far removed from highly populated residential areas. The terminal was developed to align with state and local government land-use planning efforts and is fully permitted.
In 2014, Cameron LNG began construction on new facilities to liquefy natural gas and export to the world market. Cameron will have bi-directional capabilities to export or import LNG based on changing market conditions. Read more about the liquefaction project here.
The liquefaction facility will use the existing marine berths and will be located adjacent to the existing regasification terminal and tanks. Construction is planned to be completed in 2019 with full operations in 2019. Read more here
