Cameron LNG Facility Begins Production at Train 2

Sempra LNG said its Cameron LNG facility in Louisiana has begun producing LNG from the second liquefaction train of the export facility, fewer than five months after its first train started commercial operations in August.

Train 2 was scheduled to commence commercial operations under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements in the first quarter of 2020, and Train 3 is expected to start in the third quarter, Sempra LNG said.

Those first three units make up Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project, which will enable the export of a total 12 mtpa of LNG, or approximately 1.7 Bcf/d (48 million cubic meters per day), according to the subsidiary of San Diego’s Sempra Energy.

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 Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK). Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2% of Cameron LNG.

Sempra LNG has set a goal of developing five strategically located LNG projects in North America with a goal of delivering 45 mtpa of clean natural gas to the largest world markets.
