Bechtel, a global leader in project management, engineering, procurement, and construction, has received full notice to proceed for the construction of Train 3 expansion of the Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) project in Texas. The facility is owned and operated by Cheniere Energy Inc.
"I would like to recognise the Cheniere team, our financial partners, our EPC partner, Bechtel, and our long-term customers at the CCL project for their demonstrated teamwork, commitment and execution, which were critical elements in the successful commercialisation and financing of Train 3," said Jack Fusco, Cheniere's president and chief executive officer.
"This expansion supports Cheniere's further growth in the LNG market and we take pride in being part of their achievement," said Darren Mort, Bechtel's LNG general manager.
The work on the CCL expansion includes construction of a new LNG train, an LNG tank, and the completion of a second LNG loading berth, in addition to the existing construction of two LNG trains, two tanks, and a docking facility. The expansion will add 4.5 million t of LNG per year to the plant capacity.
Cheniere's decision to proceed with the expansion of its LNG program is the first new liquefaction capacity announced in the US since 2015.
