Sempra LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, revealed that Cameron LNG's second train of the liquefaction-export infrastructure project in Hackberry, La., has begun commercial operations.
"We are excited that our first liquefaction project is nearing completion and we couldn't be more pleased that Cameron LNG is already contributing to position the U.S. as one of the top LNG-producing countries in the world," said Lisa Glatch, chief operating officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG. "We are looking forward to achieving commercial operations of the third and final train of Phase 1 while maintaining the same remarkable safety record the project has achieved thus far."
Train 3 remains on track to start initial LNG production in the second quarter of 2020 and to start commercial operations in 3Q 2020. The facility's first liquefaction train started commercial operations in August 2019.
Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains that will enable the export of about 12 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG, or 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.
