Cameron, Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis Parishes, Southwest Louisiana
Delivering Natural Gas to Louisiana’s Gulf Coast
The proposed Cameron Access Project includes improvements to existing Columbia Gulf pipeline and ancillary facilities, a new state-of-the-art compressor station near Lake Arthur, Louisiana, and the installation of a new pipeline in Cameron Parish to provide for additional market access to the Cameron LNG Terminal.
This roughly $300 million investment will bring new construction jobs to Southwest Louisiana, additional tax revenue to the state and local parishes, and further cement this region as one of America’s leading centers of energy production and commerce.
Constructed to increase the capacity of the Columbia Gulf system, the project will allow additional transportation of gas westward from the existing Columbia Gulf West Lateral. A formal precedent agreement has been signed for the new transmission capacity created by the facilities to be constructed.
The Cameron Access Project Team began to work closely with landowners in January, 2014 to identify the safest and least impactful pipeline route. Public open houses for the project were held in August of 2015.
