US LNG exporter Cheniere has received approval to put in service the third train at its Corpus Christi export plant in Texas.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said on Thursday it approved Cheniere’s request to start service for liquefaction but also export activities from the third train.
To remind, 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 25 mtpa Sabine Pass plant has five operational trains, making it the largest such facility in the US.
