A second train at Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG in Hackberry has reached the final commissioning stage.
Contracting firm McDermott International Inc. and its joint venture partner, Chiyoda International Corp., announced the milestone on Monday. This includes the introduction of pipeline feed gas into Train 2 of the liquefaction export facility, the precursor for the production of liquefied natural gas.
McDermott announced introduction of feed gas to Train 1 on April 15, 2019, which was followed by first liquid on May 14 and first cargo from Train 1 on May 31. On August 19, Cameron LNG announced that Train 1 began commercial operation, following its substantial completion.
“Congratulations to the entire Cameron LNG project team who continues to make strides on this project and remains focused on providing stellar project delivery as we reach another notable milestone,” Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said in a prepared statement.
McDermott and Chiyoda have provided the engineering, procurement and construction for the Cameron LNG project since the project’s initial award in 2014. The project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export of 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG LLC, Total, Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).
