Cheniere Energy Completes Train 2 of Sabine Pass LNG project
Cheniere Energy Partners says it has achieved substantial completion of Train 2 of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction project in Louisiana. Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor Bechtel is turning over care, custody and control of the 4.5 million-tonne-per-year production train to Cheniere. Cheniere says it will start commercial delivery of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Gas Natural Fenosa in August 2017 under a 20-year contract with the Spain-based energy utilities company.
The turnover of control of Train 2 to Cheniere will be done in coordination with a planned outage at the Sabine Pass site to perform scheduled maintenance on its Train 1 and to improve the performance of the flare systems, according to the company.
Cheniere, which began exporting LNG earlier this year, plans to build up to six liquefaction trains at Sabine Pass. Industrial Info's project database is tracking more than $36 billion in active Cheniere projects.
