Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG facility that began commercial operations at its first liquefaction train in August has reportedly declared force majeure.
Citing trade sources notified by Cameron LNG, Reuters reports the force majeure was declared due to a compressor issue at the facility.
Traders said that the impact on export volumes remains unclear.
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.
