Bechtel has released a statement claiming that the first LNG commissioning cargo has been exported from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana, US. The Asia Vision LNG carrier, which recently arrived at the facility, is currently shipping the cargo to Brazil.
Bechtel is the lump-sum turnkey (LSTK) contractor for the five liquefaction trains being constructed at the facility. This first cargo was produced on the first of the five trains.
Alasdair Cathcart, the General Manager of Bechtel’s LNG business line, said: “The first LNG commissioning cargo exported from the Sabine Pass facility is a historic achievement for Bechtel as it marks the first LNG export from the US we commissioned Kenai LNG in Alaska more than 40 years ago.
"We relied on our people, their expertise and experience, in designing and building the plant, and finding innovative solutions to the challenges of megaproject construction. I would like to congratulate the entire team – our customer Cheniere, our global suppliers, and the Bechtel team – on this extraordinary achievement as it is a testament to their collaboration and hard work."
