Cameron LNG has begun producing LNG from the first liquefaction train of the Cameron LNG export project in Hackberry, Louisiana, US.
The project will begin exports in the coming weeks.
Cameron LNG completed all major construction activities for Train 1 of the liquefaction-export project and began the commissioning and start-up process in November 2018. Last month, the facility began receiving gas flow for testing as it reached the final stage of the commissioning process.
Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains that will enable the export of approximately 12 million tpy of LNG.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corp. and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).
"Reaching this important milestone of first LNG production is truly a credit to the team at Cameron LNG and the work they've done to reach this point," said Lisa Glatch, Chief Operating Officer of Sempra LNG and Board Chair for Cameron LNG. "Cameron LNG expects to load cargoes in the coming weeks – another major step forward to bringing cleaner, affordable energy to global markets."
Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Total, added: “The start-up of the LNG production marks an important milestone for the Cameron LNG project. This achievement is the result of work carried out by all of the teams and project partners. Total’s commitment to Cameron LNG and its expansion is in line with our strategy to continue building a strong position in the US LNG market. With Cameron LNG start-up, we will achieve our target of being integrated along the gas value chain in the US since we are already a gas producer in the country.”
