The third train at the Cameron LNG project begins commercial operations
Sempra Energy of the United States announced recently that the third and final train in the first phase of the Cameron LNG project has officially begun its commercial operations in Hackberry, Louisiana. The FERC announced last month that it had signed off on this commercial startup, after physical production began in May.
With this announcement, the Cameron LNG project has completed its first phase of this LNG project with a total of 12 million tons per year in export capacity. Cameron LNG is considered to be one of the final U.S. LNG export facilities expected online this year after so many projects have been delayed due to the pandemic conditions, and is expected to bring Sempra approximately $12 billion in after-debt service cash flows during a planned 20 year period.
A second phase of export is still being planned for Cameron LNG by way of a fourth and fifth train, but this was pushed into May 2026 under a FERC extension plan.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, TOTAL SE, Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Japan LNG Investment, LLC, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha. Sempra Energy indirectly owns 50.2% of Cameron LNG.
