Cameron LNG has begun producing liquefied natural gas from the third and final liquefaction train of its Phase 1 liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, Sempra LNG said Monday.
Commercial operations for Train 3 under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements remain on track to begin in the third quarter of 2020. Cameron LNG achieved commercial operations of Train 1 and Train 2 in August 2019 and February 2020, respectively.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, TOTAL S.A., Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha. Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2% of Cameron LNG.
“Congratulations to the entire Cameron LNG team for reaching this last major milestone toward full commercial operations for Phase 1 of this critical energy infrastructure facility,” said Justin Bird, chief executive officer of Sempra LNG. “We look forward to the completion of this world-class LNG facility that will be an outlet for exporting abundant U.S. natural gas to world markets.”
Cameron LNG is a 12 million tons per year export facility.
