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 began formulating the design of this facility as a dual-purpose import/export terminal. Cameron LNG started the process by securing the purchase of a 432-acre tract of land directly north and adjacent to the existing import terminal, increasing its to total footprint to 502 acres.
In October of 2014, Cameron LNG officially announced intentions to move forward when our partners committed an estimated $10 billion to construct this liquefaction facility. The Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project includes three liquefaction Trains with a projected export of 12 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd). The company commenced commercial operations for Train 1 in August 2019, Train 2 in March 2020, and Train 3 in August 2020, respectively.
During this 5-year construction project, Cameron LNG construction and operations employees achieved a world-class safety performance of over 90 million hours worked with zero lost-time incidents.
Additionally, Cameron LNG’s activities represent a significant investment in U.S. energy infrastructure that has created jobs, supported the economy and small businesses growth in the region, as well as bolstered America’s trading partners in Europe and Asia.
In 2016, Cameron LNG received all the regulatory approvals needed to expand its facility. In January 2022, Cameron LNG requested a revision to its existing authorized permit from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that proposes to modify the expansion project by adding a single LNG train with a production capacity of 6.75 Mtpa of LNG instead of the currently authorized two trains at approximately 4.98 Mtpa each.
