Lisa Glatch, Chief Operating Officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG, said: “We are pleased to reach this important milestone in the development of the liquefaction facility.”
According to the statement, Train 2 and Train 3 are expected to commence commercial operations under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements in 1Q20 and 3Q20, respectively. The facility’s first liquefaction train started commercial operations in August last year. Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains, which will enable the export of approximately 12 million tpy of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion ft3/d.
Sempra Energy is also developing other LNG export projects in North America, including: Cameron LNG Phase 2, which was previously authorised by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and could include up to two additional liquefaction trains, as well as up to two additional LNG storage tanks; Port Arthur LNG in Texas; and Energía Costa Azul (ECA) LNG Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Mexico.
Development of any of these LNG projects depends upon obtaining binding customer commitments, completing the required commercial agreements, securing all necessary permits, obtaining financing, other factors, and reaching final investment decisions. In addition to this, the ability to successfully complete construction projects, such as the Cameron LNG export project, is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.
