Sempra Energy has announced that its subsidiaries Infraestructura Energetica Nova S.A.B. de C.V. (IEnova) and Sempra LNG & Midstream have signed three Heads of Agreements (HoAs) with affiliates of Total S.A. , Mitsui & Co. Ltd and Tokyo Gas Co. Ltd for the full export capacity of Phase 1 of the Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG project located in Baja California, Mexico.

ECA LNG Phase 1 is a single-train liquefaction facility to be located adjacent to the existing LNG receipt terminal and expected to produce approximately 2.4 million tpy of LNG for export to global markets.

The three HoAs for ECA LNG Phase 1 contemplate the parties negotiating and finalising definitive 20-year LNG sales-and-purchase agreements. The three companies each will potentially purchase approximately 0.8 million tpy of LNG from ECA LNG Phase 1. A final investment decision for ECA LNG is targeted in late 2019 with potential first LNG deliveries in 2023.
