Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG export project has requested the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission authorization to place the first liquefaction train in service.
Cameron LNG plant in Hackberry, Louisiana shipped its first cargo at the end of May and has been conducting functional and performance tests since.
In its filing to the regulator, Cameron LNG noted that it has completed commissioning of Train 1, the OSBL facilities and the associated regas facility equipment and has completed all necessary preparations to place these facilities in-service.
Al functional and performance tests for these facilities have been completed, the filing reads.
Cameron LNG requests the authorization to place the first liquefaction train at the facility in service be granted on or before July 26.
The phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains that will enable the export of approximately 12 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui & Co., and Japan LNG Investment, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK). Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2 percent of Cameron LNG.
