A deal has been signed between TotalEnergies, Sempra Infrastructure, Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Mitsubishi Corporation regarding the Hackberry Carbon Sequestration (HCS) project at Cameron LNG, a natural gas liquefaction and export facility located in southwest Louisiana, U.S.
As part of the project, Cameron LNG will capture, transport, and store carbon dioxide (CO2). It is the first injection well application accepted by the EPA in Louisiana. The HCS project filed an application for a permit to construct an injection well with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in August 2021.
“We are pleased to join force with our partners to significantly reduce CO2 emissions at Cameron LNG export terminal, thus enabling us to supply our customers with low-carbon LNG, a key fuel for the energy transition and a valuable asset for diversifying Europe’s energy supply,” said Thomas Maurisse, Senior Vice President LNG at TotalEnergies.
The Hackberry Carbon Sequestration project is pending definitive agreements, obtaining necessary permits, and final decision by all partners.
