The Cameron LNG project is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal project located on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana in the United States financed by Japan Bank for International Cooperation and many other Japanese actors are involved. The project (phase 1) is already in operation. An agreement was reached for Phase 2 development in 2022, with plans to add one more LNG liquefaction facility with a maximum annual production capacity of 6.75 million tons, and to increase the production capacity of the existing three plants. Existing plants have repeatedly caused leakage accidents and discharged harmful substances, which has also affected local fisheries.
