Liquefaction Expansion

Expansion Project (Trains 4 and 5)

In February 2015, Cameron LNG initiated the pre-filing review process with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the planned expansion of the company's existing three-train liquefaction export project in Hackberry, La.

The expansion project is expected to include two additional liquefaction trains (trains No. 4 and No. 5) and one additional full containment LNG storage tank.

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 approved, Cameron LNG's export capacity will be 24.92 Mtpa, or 3.53 Bcfd.

The expansion project will allow the company to export additional LNG from low-cost, reliable U.S. LNG supplies to international markets.

Trains 4 and 5 will be located on land within the existing Cameron LNG site.

Natural gas will be delivered to the expansion project via the existing interstate natural gas pipeline infrastructure or other systems currently under review by FERC.

The following facilities will be constructed as part of the new expansion project:

  • Two liquefaction trains, each with a maximum production capability of 4.985 Mtpa and with its own feed gas pre-treatment facilities
  • A fifth full-containment LNG storage tank with 160,000 m³ capacity, and
  • Associated utilities and infrastructure

Cameron LNG's current project and proposed expansion project represent a significant investment in U.S. energy infrastructure that will create jobs, support the economy, help small businesses grow and help America's trading partners in Europe and Asia. In May 2016, FERC authorized Cameron LNG to proceed with Expansion.
