ECA Liquefaction Project

Sempra  LNG and IEnova, Sempra’s subsidiary in Mexico, are seeking to add liquefaction facilities to the existing Energía Costa Azul (ECA) regasification terminal in Baja California to help meet the future demand for LNG and to provide the worldwide market access to a reliable source of natural gas from the Pacific coast.

ECA’s existing facilities include one marine berth and breakwater, two LNG tanks of 160,000 m³ each, LNG vaporizers, nitrogen injection systems and pipeline inter-connections. To learn more about the existing terminal, click here.

The liquefaction project would add natural gas receipt, treatment and liquefaction capabilities and loading of LNG cargoes.

Adding liquefaction capabilities at ECA is anticipated to create many benefits and provide access to cost-competitive LNG to world-wide partners.

Development of the ECA liquefaction project is contingent on several factors, including but not limited to securing all necessary permits and approvals, completing the required commercial agreements, obtaining financing and reaching a final investment decision.
