Approval to export granted for the American project Cameron LNG: A major step in its development

HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron LNG, one of the most advanced U.S. LNG export projects, promoted by GDF SUEZ as a shareholder and a capacity holder, has just reached a decisive step with the conditional non-Free Trade Agreement (FTA) approval from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The Non-FTA authorization will enable GDF SUEZ to export LNG from the Cameron LNG project in Louisiana into countries that have not signed a FTA with the USA. The project already received the FTA approval in January 2012. The two approvals will enable GDF SUEZ to sell the LNG produced by the Cameron plant to a much wider range of partners around the world.

The Final Investment Decision (FID) of the Cameron liquefaction project is expected to be taken this year.

Gerard Mestrallet, Chairman and CEO of GDF SUEZ, said: "The decision of the DOE to grant non-FTA approval opens a major opportunity for GDF SUEZ to further develop long-term LNG sales in a fast-growing global market. Cameron LNG will open new horizons for U.S. gas production that is dramatically boosted by the shale gas revolution and will strengthen GDF SUEZ's position in the LNG world market."

The completion of the environmental impact assessment by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is expected in the coming weeks as the last gate before FID.

GDF SUEZ and Cameron LNG project:

Under these agreements GDF SUEZ will hold a stake of 16.6% in the Project and will have a long-term liquefaction capacity of 4 million tons per annum (mtpa), which will enhance the Group's LNG portfolio. The facility should be commercially operational in 2018.
