Sempra LNG has announced that the first liquefaction train at the Cameron LNG project in Hackberry, Louisiana, US, has started commercial operations under the project’s tolling agreements.

Carlos Ruiz Sacristan, Chairman and CEO of Sempra North American Infrastructure, said: “This is an exciting moment for Cameron LNG and for Sempra Energy.

“Cameron LNG is exporting LNG to customers in the largest world markets, helping to support economic growth in the US and abroad.”

According to the statement, Sempra Energy’s share of full-year run-rate earnings from the first three trains at Cameron LNG are projected to be between US$400 million and US$450 million per year when all three trains begin commercial operations under Cameron LNG’s tolling agreements.

Lisa Glatch, Chief Operating Officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG, said: “We are proud that Cameron LNG has realised this key milestone with an excellent safety record and zero lost-time incidents.

“We remain focused on safely achieving commercial operations of Train 2 and Train 3.”

Train 1 is part of Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG project, which includes a projected export capacity of 12 million tpy of LNG (or approximately 1.7 billion ft3/d of natural gas). Phase 2 has already been authorised by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and includes up to two additional liquefaction trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks.
