Cameron LNG schedule
The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has been notified by the Sempra-led Cameron LNG export project that the last two Trains of the three-Train project would enter commercial service by 19 September 2020 rather than in Q1 and Q2-2020. This is because the FERC approved the construction of three liquefaction Trains in the first phase at Cameron on June 19, 2014 and the permit required the project be completed within five years. However, work and weather-related delays have affected the original schedule. Trains-1 is scheduled to ship its first cargo in June after production from feed-gas supplies began earlier in May. When completed the Cameron plant will export at least 12 mtpa of LNG, or about 1.7 Bcf/d of natural gas. Cameron LNG is owned by Sempra and other shareholders include Total, Mitsui & Co. and LNG Investment, a company jointly owned by Mitsubishi and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line).
Jacksonville LNG starts
JAX LNG, situated at Dames Point in Jacksonville, Florida, has held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the start-up of the newly constructed plant. JAX LNG is the first small-scale plant in the US with both marine and truck-loading capabilities and was built through a joint venture between Pivotal LNG and NorthStar Midstream.
