Sempra Infrastructure is proud to announce Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG Phase 1 natural gas liquefaction facility in Mexico has achieved over 1 million hours worked without a recordable safety incident, with more than 400 construction personnel currently working on site.
“Reaching one million hours worked without a recordable safety or lost-time incident is a significant achievement and we are proud of our entire ECA LNG team’s demonstrated commitment to safety. This important milestone is a testament of our safety-driven culture as we facilitate the energy transition and build energy systems of the future,” said Lisa Glatch, president of LNG and Net Zero Solutions for Sempra Infrastructure.
ECA LNG Phase 1, a joint venture between Sempra Infrastructure and TotalEnergies, will be a single-train liquefaction facility with a nameplate capacity of approximately 3.25 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of liquefied natural gas (LNG). First production of LNG is expected by the end of 2024.
Slated to be the first Pacific Coast LNG export project with direct access to abundant natural gas supplies in Texas and the Western U.S., ECA LNG Phase 1 is expected to help enable the energy transition by dispatching cleaner, more reliable U.S. LNG to global markets.
ECA LNG Phase 1 was the only LNG-export project in the world to reach a final investment decision (FID) in 2020.
Strong Safety Foundation
Sempra Infrastructure has been developing LNG infrastructure for more than 15 years and has managed and operated more than 18 Mtpa of LNG regasification capacity with an exemplary safety track record.
In 2020, Cameron LNG, a Sempra Infrastructure joint venture in Louisiana, achieved a safety record for the project of more than 89 million hours worked without a lost-time incident during construction and early operations of the three-train liquefaction facility and was recognized by the National Safety Council with the Perfect Safety Record Award.
Sempra Infrastructure remains committed to the safety and security of our workforce, customers and communities, as we continue to develop, build and operate infrastructure needed to power an evolving world.
The successful development and ultimate construction of ECA LNG Phase 1 and Sempra Infrastructure's other LNG export projects are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and there can be no assurance that these projects will be completed.
