Bechtel hands over third Corpus Christi train to Cheniere

Engineering and construction firm Bechtel has handed over operational control of the third train at the Corpus Christi export plant in Texas to Cheniere, marking the substantial completion of the liquefaction unit.

Cheniere said in a statement on Monday its EPC partner Bechtel turned over care, custody, and control of the third train on March 26.

The duo have now declared substantial completion on a total of eight liquefaction trains at the Corpus Christi and the Sabine Pass liquefaction projects, it said.

To remind, LNG Prime reported last week that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) had approved Cheniere’s request to start service for liquefaction but also export activities from the third train.

Cheniere has already shipped the first commissioning cargo from the third Corpus Christi unit in December last year.

The Corpus Christi liquefaction plant now consists of three operational trains with each having a capacity of about 5 million tonnes per annum.

In addition, Cheniere is also building the sixth train to add 5 mtpa capacity at its Sabine Pass facility.

The Sabine Pass plant has currently a capacity of 25 mtpa, making it the largest such facility in the US.
