GDF SUEZ and its partners in the Cameron LNG project announced the Final Investment Decision (FID) for the construction of the liquefaction plant.

Cameron LNG is located on an industrial-zoned site along the Calcasieu Channel in Hackberry, Louisiana. The plant will produce and export up to 12 million tons per year with 3 liquefaction trains. The construction works on site will start this fall. The total cost of this facility will be around USD 10 billion. The production of the first train is expected to start in early 2018, with second and third trains following later in 2018 and in 2019 respectively.

After completion of the plant, GDF SUEZ will have a 4 mtpa liquefaction capacity booked on a long-term tolling basis.

This decision follows receipt by Cameron LNG of the authorization to construct from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and receipt of the conditional approval from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to export LNG to nations with which the United States does not have a Free Trade Agreement.

Gérard Mestrallet, President and CEO of GDF SUEZ stated “We are very pleased to partner in one of the first LNG export projects in the US. The Cameron LNG project is a key element in GDF SUEZ’ ambitious LNG strategy as it will enable us to provide our customers around the world with a safe and secure supply of LNG on medium and long term basis. We would like to express our sincere pleasure with working with our partners – Sempra, Mitsubishi, Mitsui and NYK – in achieving this new milestone. The Cameron LNG project will be beneficial for the United States and will contribute to matching the growing energy needs of importing countries especially in Asia, and to security of gas supply in the world.”
