Sempra Infrastructure has announced an initial deal with existing equity partnerships to curb emissions at its Cameron liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal and potentially build a carbon capture hub in coastal Louisiana.

The subsidiary of San Diego-based Sempra said Monday it had secured a participation agreement with TotalEnergies, Mitsui & Co. and Mitsubishi Corp. to develop the proposed Hackberry Carbon Sequestration (HCS) project in Hackberry, LA.

Under the tentative agreement, the companies could form a joint venture to progress the project in southwestern Louisiana that would be anchored by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by natural gas liquefaction at Cameron LNG.
