Cameron LNG models terminal expansion with Lanner software
Lanner, a simulation-based decision-making software producer, has been awarded a contract by Cameron LNG to supply its liquefied natural gas (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, US.
In February 2015, Cameron LNG initiated the pre-filing review process with the US 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 tonnes per annum of LNG, or 1.41 billion cubic feet per day.
If approved, Cameron LNG's total export capacity will be 24.92 million tpy, or 3.53 cfd.
Cameron LNG chose Lanner based on the two companies’ 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.
