Lanner, provider of simulation-based decision-making software, has been awarded a contract by Cameron LNG to supply its LNG Logistics Simulator. The software will enable Cameron LNG to efficiently simulate a range of scenarios for the potential expansion of its export terminal on the Calcasieu Channel in Louisiana.
In February 2015, Cameron LNG initiated the pre-filing review process with the United States Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the expansion of its three-train export terminal. The expansion project is expected to include two additional liquefaction trains (Trains 4 and 5) and one additional full containment LNG storage tank. The expansion project is capable of increasing LNG production capacity by 9.97 million metric tons per annum (Mtpa) of LNG, or 1.41 billion cubic feet per day (Bcfd). If approved, Cameron LNG’s total export capacity will be 24.92 Mtpa, or 3.53 Bcfd.
Cameron LNG chose Lanner based on their historical relationship and prior use of Lanner’s predictive simulation technology. Lanner’s software will help Cameron LNG optimise decision-making by simulating real world variables, such as shipping and weather.
Steve Hemsley, solutions sales director at Lanner, adds, “We’re delighted to be collaborating with Cameron LNG on this important development. This is a world class project and Lanner’s world class software will help Cameron LNG achieve lasting success.”
