Cameron LNG T2 Starts Commercial Ops

The second 4mn mt/yr train of the Cameron LNG export project in Louisiana has started commercial operations, its operator Sempra Energy said on March 2.

The train started production in December and is now operating commercially under Cameron LNG's tolling agreements, Sempra said in a statement. The third and final train sanctioned as part of the project's first phase is still on track to launch production in the second quarter and begin commercial operations in the third, it said, bringing the plant's total capacity to 12mn mt/yr.

Sempra has a 50.2% stake in Cameron LNG. Its partners are France's Total and Japan’s Mitsui & Co, Mitsubishi and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.

The group plan to take a final investment decision on the project's second phase, which will add another two trains, by mid-2021.
