Another US LNG terminal to export

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 9
-- Another US Gulf Coast LNG terminal is seeking permission to export.

Sempra LNG’s Cameron, La., terminal has applied to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for approval to offer export services. The move follows similar steps by Freeport LNG at its Freeport, Tex., terminal, and by Cheniere Partners LP for its Sabine Pass terminal in Cameron Parish, La.

Cameron LNG wants 2-year authority to reexport as much as 250 bcf. This is a reexport project only, not to be supplied from US production. Also, no new equipment would be required, unlike the other two terminals, because initial design of Cameron LNG allowed for valving that permitted reverse flow, according to the application.
