  • FERC has issued an order authorizing Cameron LNG to construct and operate a fifth 160,000-cubic meter (m3) LNG storage tank, which would store LNG pending export, and two additional liquefaction trains, Trains 4 and 5, each with a liquefaction capability of 4.985 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA). Cameron proposes to construct the facilities at its LNG terminal on the Calcasieu Ship Channel in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes, La. The expansion would allow Cameron LNG to export an additional 515 Bcf/year of domestically-produced natural gas or the equivalent of 9.97 MMTPA of LNG from its existing LNG terminal. The expansion would increase the LNG terminal’s export capability to approximately 1.29 Tcf/year of domestically-produced natural gas or 24.92 MMTPA of LNG.
