Cameron LNG begins final commissioning stage of Train 3
Published by Will Owen,
Sempra LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, has announced that Cameron LNG has entered the final commissioning stage for its Phase 1, three-train liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, Louisiana, as it has started introducing pipeline feed gas flow to its third and last liquefaction train.
“Cameron LNG is a huge success story and a great tribute to what this organization and its people are capable of,” said Lisa Glatch, chief operating officer of Sempra LNG and board chair for Cameron LNG. “We are proud of Sempra LNG's development of this project as well as Cameron LNG's employees and contractors who have built and are operating this facility. With a commitment to health and safety first, the commissioning and startup of Train 3 will help meet demand from global markets for cleaner and more secure energy sources.”
Approximately 88 million hours have been worked without a lost-time incident and 58 LNG cargoes have been shipped from the facility.
Following authorisation received from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) allowing the introduction of pipeline feed gas, Cameron LNG began ramping up the feed gas deliveries to the third train as it completes the commissioning process. Commercial operation of Train 3 remains on track to begin in 3Q20.
The completion of Train 3 will bring Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project to a close. The three liquefaction trains provide the project with the capacity to export approximately 12 million tpy of LNG.
