Sempra LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, said May 18 that Cameron LNG has begun producing LNG from the third and final liquefaction train of its Phase 1 liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, Louisiana.
"Congratulations to the entire Cameron LNG team for reaching this last major milestone toward full commercial operations for Phase 1 of this critical energy infrastructure facility,” Justin Bird, CEO of Sempra LNG, said.
Commercial operations for Train 3 under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements remain on track to begin in the third quarter of 2020. Cameron LNG achieved commercial operations of Train 1 and Train 2 in August 2019 and February 2020, respectively.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total SA, Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corp. and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha. Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2% of Cameron LNG.
Sempra LNG’s mission is to be the premier North American LNG infrastructure company, by sustainably and safely providing U.S. producers of natural gas leading access to global markets. Sempra LNG owns a 50.2% interest in Cameron LNG, a 12 million ton per annum export facility operating in Hackberry, Louisiana, and is currently developing additional LNG export facilities on the Gulf Coast and Pacific Coast of North America through Cameron LNG expansion, Port Arthur LNG in Texas and Energía Costa Azul LNG in Mexico.
The successful development and ultimate construction of Sempra Energy’s LNG export projects are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties and there can be no assurance that any of these projects will be completed.
