Global demand for reliable sources of natural gas is driving new projects and strategic partnerships in the US. Sempra Infrastructure and ConocoPhillips have announced their partnership has executed a 20-year Sale and Purchase Agreement for five million tonnes per annum of liquefied natural gas from Phase 1 of the proposed Port Arthur LNG project under development in Jefferson County, Texas.
"At Sempra, we certainly believe that great projects are the result of great partnerships," said Jeffrey W. Martin, chairman and chief executive officer of Sempra. "That is why we are excited to announce a broad strategic relationship with ConocoPhillips, which has a growing global footprint across the LNG value chain. Together, we have a shared view of the role this facility can play in supporting global economies with energy supplies that advance both energy security and environmental goals."
"We are excited to partner with Sempra, and our participation in the Port Arthur LNG project will further enhance our portfolio as we continue to respond to global demand for reliable supply of natural gas," said Ryan Lance, chairman and chief executive officer of ConocoPhillips. "Sempra has a demonstrated track record of success and shares our commitment to a lower-carbon future."
The Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project is permitted and expected to include two natural gas liquefaction trains and LNG storage tanks, and associated facilities capable of producing, under optimal conditions, up to approximately 13.5 million tonnes per annum of LNG. A similarly sized Port Arthur LNG Phase 2 project is also competitively positioned and under active marketing and development.
