FID for Sabine Pass Train 6 to be Made within 2019
= Construction being prepared =
US Cheniere Energy intends to make a final investment decision (FID) for the Sabine Pass Train 6. The Company's Katsumi Kuroda reported the project progress in the CWC Japan LNG & Gas Summit, the two-day LNG & gas event in Japan (February 19th-20th): "We are planning commercial operation in 2019 and now raising fund to realize it."

The Sabine Pass LNG Terminal commenced operation of Train 5 last October. The sixth LNG train would be the project's final train at this point. Each train at the terminal has a liquefaction capacity of 4.5 mtpa. After completion of Train 6, the project's capacity reaches 27 mtpa.

The project ordered last November construction from US-based engineering major Bechtel. Cheniere has already begun preparing works ahead of FID — procurement, site preparation activities etc. — to leave time in the schedule.

On 15th, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved proceeding with construction of Train 6 underground piping. Preparation for construction to make FID before this year end is progressing steadily.

On LNG produced from Train 6, the project signed a long-term deal, the first time deal for the train, with Petronas to supply 1.1-mtpa of LNG over 20 years on a FOB basis.

The Sabine Pass LNG project is one of two Cheniere-led LNG production projects. Its second project the Corpus Christi project is carrying out commissioning of Train 2. "We plan to start commercial operation of Train 2 in the second half of this year." told Kuroda at the event.
