CAMERON PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Entergy on Tuesday announced that Entergy Gulf States Louisiana LLC has signed a commercial and contractual agreement with Sempra Energy's Cameron LNG unit to supply up to 200 megawatts of additional power to the proposed Cameron LNG liquefaction project in Hackberry.

Officials said Sempra Energy, in 2012, announced plans to develop a natural gas liquefaction export facility at the site of its existing Cameron LNG receipt terminal in Hackberry.

Entergy Gulf States Louisiana provides electrical services to the existing Cameron LNG terminal.

"The power contract between Entergy Gulf States Louisiana and Cameron LNG is for 30 years, with a 10-year initial term and automatic renewals for four successive five-year terms. Entergy plans to upgrade its electric transmission system to meet the increased demand the liquefaction facility will generate," an Entergy release states.

"We are pleased we can further extend our relationship with Entergy to provide electric power to the new liquefaction facility," said Octavio M.C. Simoes, president of Sempra Energy's LNG operations, in the release. "Entergy is a staunch supporter of economic development in Southwest Louisiana and understands the benefits our project brings to the region."

According to the release, the completed Cameron LNG liquefaction facility is expected to be made up of three liquefaction trains "with a total nameplate capacity of 13.5 million tons per annum of liquefied natural gas with an expected export capability of 12 Mtpa of LNG or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day."
