Sempra Energy’s Cameron LNG has begun producing LNG from the first liquefaction train of the three-train facility, a major commissioning milestone.
Sempra Energy set a goal in 2018 to become the largest developer of North American LNG export infrastructure, targeting 45 million tonnes per annum of LNG export capacity to serve global markets.
“With a renaissance in domestic energy production, Sempra Energy is pleased to advance America as one of the world’s largest exporters of LNG,” said Jeffrey W. Martin, Chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. “We are committed to providing a cleaner fuel source to the global markets while supporting job creation right here at home.”
Over 11,000 highly skilled workers have contributed to the construction of this U.S. energy infrastructure project, including welders, iron workers, insulators, electricians, construction workers, logistics professionals and other important vocations.
Cameron LNG Phase 1 is one of five LNG projects Sempra Energy is developing in North America. Other projects under development include Cameron LNG Phase 2, previously authorized by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which could include up to two additional liquefaction trains and up to two additional LNG storage tanks; Port Arthur LNG in Texas, which recently was approved by FERC; and Energía Costa Azul LNG Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Mexico.
“Sempra Energy is developing five world-class projects that offer more choice to our customers, including brown-field locations, access to both the Asian and European markets, and flexibility and scalability to meet growing demand,” added Martin.
