= By 2.95 million tonnes per year to match with its maximum production capacity =
Cameron LNG LLC, developing the LNG producing and exporting project in Louisiana, U.S.A. recently filed an application to the Department of Energy (DOE) for a permit to export additional volume of LNG. The application, for 2.95 million tonnes per year (about 0.42 Bcf per day) for 20 years, is to increase the project's overall exportable LNG volume so that it matches with the project's maximum production capacity.

When the company's request under the additional application is granted, it will be able to export up to 14.95 million tpy (2.12 Bcf per day) of LNG, as it has so far obtained permits to export up to 12 million tpy (1.7 Bcf per day) to FTA countries as well as to non-FTA countries.

On the other hand, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has permitted construction of the project's facilities whose capacity will be up to 14.95 million tpy comprising of three 4.99-million-tpy liquefaction trains.

Cameron LNG LLC already set to construct the facilities in October 2014 based on the all permits necessary for starting construction, aiming at production start-ups at the three trains one by one during 2018 for a full-scale production in 2019.

The project partners are, Sempra Energy as the operator, GDF Suez, Mitsui & Company, Japan LNG Investment (a joint venture by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen).
