CHENIERE ENERGY PARTNERS COMPLETES TRAIN 6 AT SABINE PASS LIQUEFACTION PROJECT
Cheniere Energy Partners, a subsidiary of Cheniere Energy, announced that Substantial Completion of Train 6 at the Sabine Pass liquefaction project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana (SPL Project) was achieved on February 4, 2022. Commissioning is complete and Cheniere’s engineering, procurement and construction partner, Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals, Inc. has turned over care, custody, and control of Train 6 to Cheniere Partners.
Cheniere Partners and Bechtel have now declared Substantial Completion on all six liquefaction trains at the SPL Project ahead of each train’s guaranteed completion date and within project budgets. With the achievement of Substantial Completion, financial results of liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) sales from Train 6 going forward will be reflected in the statement of operations of Cheniere Partners and its applicable affiliates.
“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,” said Jack Fusco, Chairman, President and CEO of Cheniere Partners. “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.”
Cheniere Partners owns the Sabine Pass LNG terminal located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, which has natural gas liquefaction facilities consisting of six operational liquefaction Trains, with a total production capacity of approximately 30 mtpa of LNG. The Sabine Pass LNG terminal also has operational regasification facilities that include five LNG storage tanks, vaporizers, and two marine berths with a third marine berth under construction.
