Cheniere Energy Inc.’s $14bn LNG terminal in San Patricio County, Texas, is now in the startup and commissioning process and is expected to be fully operational in 2019.
As part of the terminal’s operations, Cheniere Energy has been preparing three LNG trains and associated pipeline and other infrastructure. The third LNG train received a positive Final Investment Decision (FID) from the board of directors in May of this year.
The first LNG train is set to go into service in the first half of 2019. The second LNG train is also scheduled for 2019, though is set to be ready for service in the latter half of the year. The company is also continuing work on the third LNG train, which is expected to be completed by 2021. These three LNG trains are being produced as part of the company’s CCL Project.
The CCL Project is a three train liquefaction project under construction near Corpus Christi, Texas. Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential over design, of approximately 4.5 mtpa of LNG.
