McDermott International and its joint venture partner, Chiyoda International Corporation, announced that Train 2 of the Cameron project, located in Hackberry, La., has reached the final commissioning stage. This includes the introduction of pipeline feed gas into Train 2 of the liquefaction export facility, the precursor for the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG). This achievement is yet another significant milestone during 2019 and the first for Train 2.
McDermott announced introduction of feed gas to Train 1 on 15 April 2019, which was followed by first liquid on 14 May and first cargo from Train 1 on 31 May. On 19 August, Cameron LNG announced that Train 1 began commercial operation, following its substantial completion.
"Congratulations to the entire Cameron LNG project team who continues to make strides on this project and remains focused on providing stellar project delivery as we reach another notable milestone," said Mark Coscio, McDermott's senior vice president for North, Central and South America.
McDermott and Chiyoda have provided the engineering, procurement and construction for the Cameron LNG project since the project's initial award in 2014. The project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export of 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.
Cameron LNG is jointly owned by affiliates of Sempra LNG, Total, Mitsui & Co and Japan LNG Investment, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi Corporation and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha.
