FERC approves Cameron LNG’s expansion pre-filing request
The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued an order approving Cameron LNG’s request to initiate the pre-filing review process for the planned trains 4 and 5 expansion project.
FERC said in its filing that beginning the commission’s review of this proposal prior to the receipt of the application will greatly improve FERC’s ability to identify issues early and address them in the environmental document.
Cameron LNG plans to construct an additional LNG storage tank and two additional liquefaction trains at its existing liquefaction terminal in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes, Louisiana.
The storage tank would have a 160,000 cubic meter LNG storage capacity with each additional train having a maximum conversion capacity of 4.985 million metric tons of natural gas per year to LNG for export.
Cameron LNG intends to file an application no later than September 2015.
