The third liquefaction unit at the Corpus Christi LNG terminal is expected to be completed in the first half of 2021, ahead of the initially planned the second half of the year. US engineering company Bechtel is accelerating construction of the unit, which has reached 68.6% completion as of end-September.|
The timeline was revealed in Cheniere Energy's quarterly report released on 1st. The Corpus Christi project is planning three LNG trains each with a capacity of 4.5 million mt per annum. The first and second units were completed this March and September respectively.
The company is also operating the Sabine Pass LNG terminal, where five 4.5-mtpa trains have already started commercial operations. Cheniere Energy's LNG shipment between January and September achieved 1,054 TBtu (299 cargoes) combined, up by 53% year on year.
Furthermore, the Corpus Christi Train 3 will be added from 1H 2021 and the company is also constructing Sabine Pass Train 6 to complete it in the first half of 2023. Its LNG shipping volume will further increase.
Also, the Corpus Christi expansion project is ongoing. The project plans to add capacity of approx. 9.5 mtpa combined through seven mid-scale liquefaction units. A final investment for the project is planned in 2020. Cheniere Energy is advancing talks to sign an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) deal within months.
