Train 2 of Cheniere Energy’s liquefaction project in Corpus Christi, Texas, has been declared substantially complete, Cheniere Energy announced Tuesday.
The engineering, procurement and construction partner for the project was Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals. Cheniere said that the commissioning of Train 2 is complete and Bechtel has turned over care, custody and control of the facility to Cheniere.
The company now has seven liquefaction trains, five liquefaction trains in operation at its Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana and the two at Corpus Christi. Each train is capable of liquefying about 700 MMcfd of gas.
According to the sale and purchase agreements, the first commercial delivery from the new unit is expected to occur in May 2020, Chieniere said.
