HACKBERRY, La. (AP) - An expansion project has been given the go-ahead at the Cameron LNG export facility in Hackberry.

The Lake Charles American Press reports (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb) the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently authorized the expansion, allowing the plant to “site, construct, and operate certain additional facilities,” including two more trains, bringing the terminal’s total to five.

A fifth full containment storage tank will also be added.

FERC officials say the expansion will allow Cameron to export an additional 9.97 million metric tons of LNG per year.

The Cameron LNG terminal was originally authorized to import, store and deliver LNG to domestic markets, but has since been authorized to use the terminal to export LNG to foreign markets.

The project is expected to be completed and ready for service within four years.
