Substantial Completion of Train 2 at the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project
September 16, 2016
Cheniere announced today that Substantial Completion of Train 2 of the Sabine Pass liquefaction project was achieved on September 15, 2016. Commissioning has been completed and Cheniere’s EPC partner Bechtel is turning over care, custody, and control of Train 2 to Cheniere. This turnover will be done in coordination with a previously announced planned outage to improve performance of the flare systems at the SPL Project, as well as to perform scheduled maintenance to Train 1 and other facilities. Under a sale and purchase agreement with Gas Natural Fenosa, the date of first commercial delivery for Train 2 of the SPL Project is expected to occur in August 2017 upon which the SPA’s 20-year term commences. Prior to this date, GNF has certain rights to early cargoes produced from Train 2 as described in the SPA. […]
Cheniere plans to construct over time up to six liquefaction trains, which are in various stages of development and construction. Trains 1 and 2 have achieved Substantial Completion, Train 3 is undergoing commissioning, Trains 4 and 5 are under construction, and Train 6 is fully permitted. Each liquefaction train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5mtpa. SPL has entered into six third-party LNG sale and purchase agreements that in the aggregate equate to approximately 19.75 mtpa of LNG and commence with DFCD of Trains 1 through 5 as specified in the respective SPAs.
