HACKBERRY, La., March 2, 2020 – Cameron LNG today announced that Train 2 of its liquefaction-export project in Hackberry, La., has begun commercial operations under the tolling agreements in place to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to customers in the global market.

“Reaching commercial operations on Train 2 is another significant milestone for Cameron LNG, its employees and partners,” said Farhad Ahrabi, CEO of Cameron LNG. “I would like to thank our employees for their hard work and commitment, not only for their accomplishments on Train 2, but also for getting Train 3 close to completion.”
