Cheniere Partners and Bechtel have now declared substantial completion on all six trains at the Sabine Pass LNG Project ahead of each train’s guaranteed completion date and within project budgets, the Cheniere Energy subsidiary said.

With the addition of Train 6, the Cheniere-owned Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, now has a total LNG production capacity of approximately 30 million tonnes per annum (MTPA). The terminal also has operational regasification facilities that include five LNG storage tanks, vaporizers, and two marine berths, with a third marine berth under construction.

“With nine total trains across both the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi projects, the Cheniere liquefaction platform is the second largest in the world," said Jack Fusco, chairman, president and CEO of Cheniere Partners, citing "the world-class standard of execution" throughout the project with Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals.

"We look forward to opportunities to build upon our platform with disciplined, brownfield growth at both sites in the future,” Fusco said.

Cheniere Partners also owns the Creole Trail Pipeline, which interconnects the Sabine Pass LNG terminal with a number of large interstate pipelines.
