Cameron LNG project joint owners have started commercial operation from Train 1 following its substantial completion.

LNG contractor McDermott International, which along with Chiyoda – its JV partner on the project – has been providing EPC and commissioning for the project since it began, announced the start of operations on Train 1 on Monday.

Mark Coscio, McDermott’s SVP for North, Central, and South America, said: “This is a significant milestone for the Cameron LNG project. Congratulations to the McDermott project team whose steadfast commitment to outstanding project quality has been going strong since its award in 2014.

Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui, and Japan LNG Investment. Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2 percent of Cameron LNG.

The project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export capacity of more than 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.

Train 2 and Train 3 are expected to begin producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the first quarter of 2020 and the second quarter of 2020, respectively.

It is worth noting that the Cameron LNG project was granted a permit to start service at its first liquefaction train by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in late July.
