Cheniere completes final train at Sabine Pass

US LNG provider Cheniere Energy said February 7 it has completed the 5mn metric tons/year Train 6 at its Sabine Pass liquefaction project in Louisiana.

Cheniere’s EPC partner, Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals turned over care, custody, and control of Train 6 to Cheniere, declaring substantial completion on all six liquefaction trains. All six trains were completed ahead of schedule and within budget.

“The accelerated completion of Train 6 once again reflects the world-class standard of execution consistently achieved by the Cheniere and Bechtel teams, and we are proud to have the six train vision of Sabine Pass completed safely, ahead of schedule and on budget,” Cheniere CEO Jack Fusco said. “With nine total trains across both the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi projects, the Cheniere liquefaction platform is the second largest in the world, reliably providing our global customer base with clean, secure and affordable energy. We look forward to opportunities to build upon our platform with disciplined, brownfield growth at both sites in the future.”

The 30 mn mt/yr Sabine Pass LNG terminal also has operational regasification facilities that include five LNG storage tanks, vaporisers, and two marine berths with a third marine berth under construction.
