Background

The TransCameron Pipeline would be operated by TransCameron Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of Venture Global LNG.[4] Venture Global applied to FERC in September 2015 to site, build, and operate the pipeline.[5] FERC lists this application as pending as of October 2017.[6]

The pipeline received FERC approval in February of 2019.[7] In August of 2019, Venture Global LNG made a final investment decision and closed project financing. The project has received all necessary permits, including authorization from FERC and from the US Department of Energy for non-Free Trade Agreement export. Construction has been under way since February and the project is expected to begin commercial operations in 2022. The project has 20-year LNG sales agreements with Shell, BP, Edison SPA, Galp Energia SGPS SA, Repsol SA, and Polish Oil & Gas Co.[8]

In April 2021, FERC cleared the pipeline to enter service based on Venture Global's construction reports and photo documentation.[9]
