Cameron LNG fires up third train

The Sempra Energy-led Cameron LNG project has on Monday started producing chilled fuel from the third liquefaction train at its export plant in Louisiana.

This development also marks the last major milestone towards completing the first phase of the LNG export project.

The LNG export project has a price tag of about $10 billion.

Sempra expects commercial operations for the third train under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements to start in the third quarter.

The first phase of the Cameron LNG project includes three trains that will enable the export of about 12 mtpa.

Cameron LNG launched commercial operations at the first train in August 2019 followed by the second unit in February 2020.

The project participants include affiliates of Sempra, Total, Mitsui & Co and Japan LNG Investment, a company held by Mitsubishi Corp and NYK.

Sempra indirectly holds 50.2 percent of Cameron.

McDermott International and Chiyoda are the lead contractors at the LNG export project.
