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. The Cameron LNG liquefaction-export project includes three liquefaction Trains with a projected export of 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day. The company commenced commercial operations for Train No. 1 in August 2019, Trains No. 2 and No. 3 in March and August 2020, respectively.
During the multi-year construction phase of the project, Cameron LNG construction and operations employees achieved a world-class safety performance of over 89 million hours worked with zero lost-time incidents.
In 2016, Cameron LNG 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.
