Sempra LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, has announced that Cameron LNG has begun producing LNG from the third and final liquefaction train of its Phase 1 liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, Louisiana.
“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, CEO of Sempra LNG. “We look forward to the completion of this world-class LNG facility that will be an outlet for exporting abundant US natural gas to world markets. Sempra LNG is proud of the thousands of engineering and construction jobs and millions of tax revenues the project has provided to Southwest Louisiana. As the construction phase of the project concludes with a remarkable record of over 88 million hours without a lost time incident, we are confident in Cameron LNG’s commitment to operating safely and continuing to support the local economy and community that has welcomed us since day one.”
Commercial operations for Train 3 under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements remain on track to begin in 3Q20. Cameron LNG achieved commercial operations of Train 1 and Train 2 in August 2019 and February 2020, respectively.
“I applaud the hard work and commitment of the entire joint venture project team whose focus on safety and delivery during this dynamic time brought Train 3 to the state of producing LNG,” said EPC contractor McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, Mark Coscio. “The teamwork and diligence they have placed on safety and health as we navigate through the current COVID-19 pandemic has enabled us to continue our operations and deliver the project.”
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.
