Sempra Energy-led Cameron LNG LLC began producing LNG from the second liquefaction train of its export facility in Louisiana.
Cameron LNG expects the second and third trains of the facility to enter commercial service in the first quarter and third quarter of 2020, respectively, according to a Dec. 23 news release. Cameron LNG said earlier in December that it reached the final commissioning stage for the second liquefaction train. The facility's first train entered commercial service in August.
The first phase of Cameron LNG's export project includes the first three liquefaction trains, which allow for an export capacity of roughly 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, according to the news release. The second phase of the project could include up to two additional trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks.
Cameron LNG is a joint venture of Sempra, Total SA, Japan's Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and a company jointly owned by Japan's Mitsubishi Corp. and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.
