Sempra Energy announces Cameron LNG ships first cargo of LNG from export project
Sempra LNG, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, announced that Cameron LNG has shipped the first commissioning cargo of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, from the first liquefaction train of the export project in Hackberry, Louisiana. Commissioning cargos are a step in the start-up process and support stabilizing production and performance testing. Commercial operations from the facility will begin after Cameron LNG receives authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which is expected in mid-2019. Phase 1 of the Cameron LNG export project includes the first three liquefaction trains that will enable the export of approximately 12M tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7B cubic feet per day.
