Cheniere’s Sabine Pass terminal ships 2000th LNG cargo

Cheniere’s giant Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana has shipped the 2000th cargo of liquefied natural gas since its launch in 2016.

“A few days after the 7th anniversary of our first LNG cargo exported from Sabine Pass, today we exported our 2000th cargo from there, completing that feat faster than any other facility in the world,” Cheniere said in a social media post on Wednesday.

The US LNG exporting giant did not provide any additional information.

Sabine Pass currently has a capacity of about 30 mtpa following the launch of the sixth train in February last year, while Cheniere’s three-train Corpus Christi plant in Texas can produce about 15 mtpa of LNG.

Cheniere and compatriot Bechtel last year completed the third jetty project at the Sabine Pass LNG facility.

Moreover, Cheniere recently initiated the pre-filing review process with the US FERC for the proposed Sabine Pass Stage 5 expansion project.

The project will include up to three large-scale liquefaction trains, each with a production capacity of about 6.5 mtpa of LNG, a boil-off-gas (BOG) re-liquefaction unit with a production capacity of 0.75 mtpa of LNG, and two 220,000-cbm LNG storage tanks.

Cheniere’s partner in both Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi, Bechtel, will complete a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study of the new expansion project.

Cheniere exported record 638 LNG cargoes, mostly to Europe, from its two plants during 2022, compared to 566 in 2021.

It produced about 44 million tons of LNG during 2022, 72 percent of which was directed to Europe, the firm said.
