HACKBERRY, La., August 19, 2019 – Cameron LNG today announced that Train 1 of its new liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, La., has begun commercial operations under the tolling agreements in place to export LNG to customers in the global market.

“Achieving commercial operations of the first train has required hard work and dedication from many people both within and outside of Cameron LNG,” said Farhad Ahrabi, CEO of Cameron LNG. “I would like to thank all Cameron LNG employees for their commitment to reach this significant milestone. It is truly a proud occasion for all of us and one that we will celebrate together as we continue working to achieve commercial operations on Trains 2 and 3 with the same rigor and world-class safety performance.”

Cameron LNG completed all major construction activities for Train 1 and began the commissioning and start-up process in November 2018. In May, the facility began producing LNG and shipping commissioning cargos as part of the process to support stabilizing production and performance testing. Commercial operations commenced following the completion of performance testing and receipt of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) authorization to commence service.

Train 1 includes a projected export capacity of 4 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG.
