Cheniere said commissioning of Train 2 is complete and Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals – its engineering, procurement and construction partner for the project – has turned over care, custody and control of the facility to Cheniere.

With the addition of Corpus Christi's Train 2, Cheniere, its subsidiaries, and Bechtel have now declared substantial completion on seven liquefaction trains ahead of each train’s guaranteed completion date and within project budgets, the company said.

Houston-based Cheniere has five liquefaction trains in operation at its Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana, in addition to the two at Corpus Christi. Each train is capable of liquefying about 700 MMcfd of gas.

The announcement came as new data showed U.S. exports of LNG have grown to 10% of the global market.

First commercial deliveries from the new train are expected to begin in May 2020 upon commencement of sale and purchase agreements with Électricité de France, Iberdrola, Naturgy Energy Group, PT Pertamina (Persero), and Woodside Energy Trading Singapore.

First commercial delivery from the new unit is expected to occur in May 2020, according to sale and purchase agreements, Chieniere said.
