Peterson partners with Port Cameron to develop state-of-the-art port in the Gulf of Mexico
Leading international energy logistics provider Peterson has signed a teaming partnership agreement with Port Cameron LLC, to develop a state-of-the-art port and supply base facility in the Gulf of Mexico. Peterson will provide logistics consultancy services to support the planning and initial development of Port Cameron, a 500-acre deepwater staging port situated in Cameron, Louisiana, serving the Gulf of Mexico, the company said in its press release. Under the agreement, Peterson will have the option to lease up to 1.2 million square feet of space in Port Cameron Logistic Center and will also serve as port manager. In this role, Peterson will provide operational support and port management, including supporting Port Cameron with strategic development. Upon completion, Port Cameron will be the largest private energy services facility on the Gulf Coast, with more than 21,000 linear feet of bulkhead lots on dredged slips of 500-feet and 700-feet wide and dredged depths of 33 feet.
Work slated to begin on $1.5 billion Cameron port
Construction is set to begin this fall on a $1.5 billion deepwater staging port in Cameron. The Advocate reports Port Cameron LLC plans to begin the first phase of the four-year project in November. Real estate services firm JLL Houston will lead the leasing efforts for the facility. The first phase, which will be on 500 acres on the Calcasieu Ship Channel, with available space for future expansion, is scheduled to be complete around fall 2017. Director of Operations Ted Falgout said in a statement from JLL that Port Cameron provides companies convenient access to offshore installations in the Gulf of Mexico. A study from consulting firm Loren Scott Associates says the port will generate about $2.8 billion in sales and 10,000 jobs for Louisiana when fully leased. Source: Associated Press
Cargoes moving out of Cheniere's LNG plant
Cheniere Energy's Sabine Pass natural gas liquefaction plant has shipped its seventh cargo, roughly eight weeks after the company began producing the first LNG in the lower 48 United States. The ship, called the Gaslog Salem, loaded at the terminal near the Texas border in Cameron Parish, La., and sailed Monday, on its way to Portugal, Cheniere officials said. The LNG shipments to Portugal represent the opening of a new market for U.S. shale gas in Europe, which has relied largely on Russian and Norwegian supplies.Upload News
