TotalEnergies: launch of the Cameron LNG extension project in the United States

(AOF) – TotalEnergies has signed a memorandum of understanding with Sempra Infrastructure, Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and Japan LNG Investment – ​​a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) – for the expansion of Cameron LNG, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) production and export terminal located in Louisiana, United States -United.

This extension project concerns the construction of a fourth train with a maximum production capacity of 6.75 million tonnes of LNG per year (Mtpy) and the increase by 5% of the capacity of 13.5 Mtpy of first three trains by debottlenecking.

The project will also include design improvements to reduce site emissions, including the use of electrically powered compressors. Under the agreement, TotalEnergies will remove 16.6% of the production of the fourth train, and 25% of the additional production of the existing trains.

In parallel to this agreement, Cameron LNG awarded two engineering studies contracts (FEED) relating to this expansion with a view to the future selection of the company in charge of the execution contract (EPC) of the project.

“We are pleased to take this next step with our partners to increase the liquefaction capacity of Cameron LNG, a facility ideally located in the Atlantic basin for the export of LNG to Europe. TotalEnergies has become, over the past America’s leading LNG exporter, most of which has recently been exported to Europe, thus contributing to the continent’s security of energy supply.TotalEnergies is firmly committed to continuing its development in the United States, and to be able to meet the growing need for LNG, a key source of energy transition”, declared Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.

“The Cameron LNG expansion will contribute to our LNG growth strategy by investing in low-cost, long-term competitive, low greenhouse gas emissions projects.”
