Cheniere Partners and Bechtel reach Louisiana LNG milestone

Commissioning is complete at Sabine pass LNG Terminal and Bechtel has turned over control to Cheniere Partners

Cheniere Partners and Bechtel have announced substantial completion of Train 6 at Sabine pass LNG Terminal in Louisiana.

Commissioning is complete and Bechtel, Cheniere’s engineering, procurement and construction partner, has turned over control of Train 6 to Cheniere Partners.

“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.”

With the achievement of Substantial Completion, financial results of liquefied natural gas sales from Train 6 going forward will be reflected in the statement of operations of Cheniere Partners and its applicable affiliates, Fusco added.

Sabine Pass LNG terminal 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.

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

“Cheniere Partners plays a vital role in delivering reliable and safe energy to communities around the world,” said Brendan Bechtel, Chairman and CEO of Bechtel. “For us to be involved in supporting the development of these extraordinary projects is a great source of pride, and we are honoured to help bring Cheniere’s vision to reality.”

“We have built a great partnership, based on trust and shared goals, that continues to deliver cleaner and more affordable energy for an ever-rising global demand for lower-carbon alternatives,” concluded Paul Marsden, President of Bechtel Energy.

  • Sempra Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Sempra, recently entered into an MoU with Entergy Louisiana to develop options designed to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy to power Sempra Infrastructure's facilities in the state. "Electrification of industrial processes, increasing Louisiana's renewable and zero carbon electricity resources, and becoming a leader in the deployment of carbon sequestration, are three of the pillars that are critical to ensuring our success in a net-zero world," said Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards
