The Cameron LNG project has achieved first liquefied natural gas (LNG) production from train 1, French energy major Total said on 14 May. The second-largest private global LNG player, Total said the $10 billion Cameron Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, would begin exports in the coming weeks.

“The start-up of the LNG production marks an important milestone for the Cameron LNG project,” Total Chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné said in a statement. “This achievement is the result of work carried out by all of the teams and project partners. Total’s commitment to Cameron LNG and its expansion is in line with our strategy to continue building a strong position in the US LNG market. With Cameron LNG start-up, we will achieve our target of being integrated along the gas value chain in the US since we are already a gas producer in the country,” he added.

US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and European Commission Vice-President for Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič joined US President Donald J. Trump on a trip to the LNG export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
