November 7, 2018
Sempra Energy announced that its subsidiaries Infraestructura Energetica Nova and Sempra LNG & Midstream have signed three HOAs with Total, Mitsui and Tokyo Gas for the full export capacity of Phase 1 of the Energia Costa Azul (ECA) LNG project located in Baja California, Mexico. ECA LNG Phase 1 is a single-train liquefaction facility to be located adjacent to the existing LNG receiving terminal and expected to produce approximately 2.4 MTPA of LNG.
The three HOAs for ECA LNG Phase 1 contemplate the parties negotiating and finalizing definitive 20-year LNG SPAs. The three companies each will potentially purchase approximately 0.8 MTPA from ECA LNG Phase 1. A FID for ECA LNG is targeted in late 2019 with potential first LNG deliveries in 2023.
