Cameron Pipeline Expansion
The Cameron Interstate Pipeline expansion project included modifications to Cameron Interstate Pipeline’s existing gas transmission system.
Location : Cameron Parish, Louisiana
Capacity : 1.5 Bcfd
Size : 3.58 miles, 36-inch diameter pipeline
Commercial Operation : 2017
The Cameron Interstate Pipeline expansion project included modifications to Cameron Interstate Pipeline’s existing gas transmission system and was developed to receive and transport domestically-produced natural gas to the Cameron LNG liquefaction project currently under construction in Hackberry, Louisiana.
The existing Cameron Interstate Pipeline starts in Cameron Parish, adjacent to Cameron LNG and follows a route along Calcasieu Parish, terminating at the Ragley Compressor Station in Beauregard Parish.
The expansion project adds bi-directional flow to the pipeline to allows it to transport natural gas from various interstate pipeline interconnections to Cameron LNG. The project was designed so that the addition of the new facilities will not preclude Cameron Interstate Pipeline from receiving send-out gas from the Cameron LNG Terminal.
The following facilities were constructed or modified as part of the expansion project::
