FERC OKs commissioning of third Cameron LNG train

The US energy regulators granted Sempra-led Cameron LNG to start the commissioning process of the third liquefaction train at its export plant in Louisiana.

US FERC said in an order dated April 21 it allows Cameron LNG to introduce “hazardous fluids and commission the Train 3 feed gas to warm end system”.

The regulator added that this approval “does not grant Cameron LNG the authority to introduce hazardous fluids or commission other project facilities at the LNG terminal”.

To remind, Cameron LNG launched commercial operations at the second liquefaction train in February this year. The facility’s first train started operations in August 2019.

The operator expects to start commercial operations at the newest train in the third quarter of this year.

The first phase of the $10 billion-worth Cameron LNG project includes three liquefaction trains. These units will enable the export of about 12 million tonnes per year.

Cameron LNG is a venture consisting of affiliates of Sempra, Total, Mitsui & Co and Japan LNG Investment. The LNG investment firm is a company jointly owned 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.
