French energy major TotalEnergies SE said on April 11 it would step up its LNG activities in the U.S. by expanding production at the Cameron site in Louisiana.

“We are pleased to take this new step with our partners to increase liquefaction capacity at Cameron LNG, a facility ideally located on the Atlantic basin for export to Europe,” Patrick Pouyanné, chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies, commented in a company release.

The move comes as European countries seek to reduce their dependency on gas flows from Russia. In recent years, Pouyanné said TotalEnergies has become the leading exporter of U.S. LNG, most of which has been exported to Europe in recent times, contributing to the continent’s security of energy supply.
