The US shale revolution began almost a decade ago and per the US Energy Administration, production has now risen to almost 50bn cubic ft/day. With gas being convenient as well as low-cost, it is replacing coal from the power sector and transforming the world’s energy markets.

Sempra LNG & Midstream leads Sempra Energy’s efforts to develop and build LNG terminals & liquefaction facilities, currently concentrating on projects in the US. Their portfolio includes a 3-train liquefaction project, Cameron LNG, as well as a natural gas liquefaction and export facility, Port Arthur LNG.
