In Sabine Pass LNG’s latest monthly progress report to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Sabine Pass LNG announced that it is delaying the completion date of Trains 1 and 2 until May and August 2016, respectively.
The report states: “Actual project progress supports the achievement of substantial completion for Trains 1 and 2 by May 2016 and August 2016, respectively. Trains 3 and 4 targeted substantial completion dates are April 2017 and August 2017, respectively, with schedule recovery expected in the summer of 2016 as labour resource is transitioned from Stage 1 onto Stage 2.”
In its November 2015 progress report, Sabine Pass indicated that Trains 1 and 2 were set for substantial completion by March 2016 and June 2016, respectively.
