Cheniere Energy Partners L.P. has announced that Train 2 at the Sabine Pass liquefaction project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US, has achieved substantial completion. Commissioning has been completed and Cheniere’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) partner, Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals Inc., has turned over care, custody and control of Train 2 to Cheniere Partners. This turnover will be done in coordination with the previously-announced planned outage to improve the flare systems’ performance at the project, as well as to carry out scheduled maintenance work on both Train 1 and other facilities.
As set out in a sales and purchase agreement (SPA) with Gas Natural Fenosa LNG GOM Ltd, Train 2’s first delivery is expected to occur in August 2017. At this point, the 20-year term of the SPA will commence. Before this occurs, Gas Natural Fenosa holds certain rights to early cargoes that Train 2 produces.
Cheniere Partners, through Sabine Pass Liquefaction, is planning to construct up to six liquefaction trains at the facility. Trains 1 and 2 have achieved substantial completion; Train 3 is undergoing commissioning; Trains 4 and 5 are under construction; and Train 6 has been fully permitted. Each Train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 million tpy of LNG.
