Sempra Energy said that production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the first liquefaction train started at the Cameron LNG export project in Hackberry, Louisiana. 

Lisa Glatch, chief operating officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG, said, “Cameron LNG expects to load cargoes in the coming weeks.”

Cameron LNG completed all major construction activities for Train 1 of the liquefaction-export project and began the commissioning and start-up process in November 2018.

Last month, the facility began receiving gas flow for testing as it reached the final stage of the commissioning process, Sempra reminded in its statement.

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 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% of Cameron LNG.

Cameron LNG Phase 1 is one of five LNG export projects Sempra Energy is developing in North America.

The other projects include Cameron LNG Phase 2, authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which could include up to two additional liquefaction trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks, Port Arthur LNG in Texas, which recently was approved by FERC, and Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Mexico.
