Sempra’s Cameron LNG plant ships 700th cargo

US LNG exporter Sempra has shipped the 700th cargo of liquefied natural gas from its Cameron LNG export plant in Louisiana since 2019.

Cameron LNG, the LNG terminal operator controlled by Sempra’s unit Sempra Infrastructure, announced the completion of loading of its 700th LNG cargo in a social media post last week.

The cargo was exported onboard the 2018-built 174,000-cbm LNG carrier, Marvel Falcon.

“The Marvel Falcon represents the 189th export cargo loaded this year as we continue to set records on daily LNG production throughout December,” Cameron LNG said.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the LNG carrier, owned by NYK Line and chartered by Mitsui, departed Cameron LNG on December 10 and delivered the shipment on December 27 to Germany’s FSRU-based LNG import terminal in Brunsbüttel.

The Cameron LNG plant has three liquefaction trains with a total capacity of about 12 million tonnes per year of LNG or about 1.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd).

Cameron LNG’s first train started commercial operations in August 2019, followed by the launch of operations at the second train in March 2020, and the third train in August 2020.

The plant shipped its 100th cargo of LNG in August 2020.

Besides Sempra Infrastructure, other partners in Cameron LNG include affiliates of TotalEnergies, Mitsui & Co, and Japan LNG Investment, a company held by Mitsubishi Corp and NYK.

In addition to these three trains, Sempra and its partners are working to expand the facility with the fourth train with a capacity of about 6.75 mtpa.

The partners selected Bechtel to build the Cameron Phase 2.

Justin Bird, CEO of Sempra infrastructure, said in August 2023 that the partners plan to take FID on the expansion project in 2024.
