Cameron LNG Train 2 Starts Commercial Operations 7 Months After Train 1
Cameron LNG said Train 2 of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in Hackberry, Louisiana, has started commercial operations, 7 months after commercial operations began for Train 1 in August 2019.
The company, which is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui & Co., and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), completed all major construction activities for Train 2 in 2019.
The company also began receiving gas flow for testing in November as it reached the final stage of the commissioning process. Train 2 began producing LNG and shipping cargoes in December as part of the process to support stabilizing production and performance testing.
The overall project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export capacity of more than 12 mtpa. Train 2 includes a projected export capacity of 4 mtpa, and Train 3 is on track to reach initial LNG production in Q2 2020, according to project engineering partner McDermott.
McDermott and its joint venture member on the project, Chiyoda, have been providing engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning for the project since it began.
