Cameron LNG has shipped the first commissioning cargo of LNG from Train 1 of its facility in Hackberry, La., said Sempra Energy subsidiary Sempra Energy LNG. Commissioning cargos are a critical step in the start-up process and support stabilizing production and performance testing, the company said. Commercial operations are expected midyear following authorization from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Once fully operational, Train 1 will have the capacity to produce 4 million tonnes/year of LNG. The overall project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export of 12 million tpy (1.7 bcfd) of LNG. An expansion, if undertaken, would include two additional liquefaction trains and as many as two additional full containment LNG storage tanks. The expansion is capable of increasing LNG production capacity by 9.97 million tpy (1.41 bcfd) of LNG. If constructed, Cameron LNG’s export capacity will be 24.92 million tpy (3.53 bcfd).

Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG LLC, Total SA, Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corp. and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.
