Bechtel has handed over operational control of the sixth train at the Sabine Pass export plant in Louisiana to Cheniere, marking the substantial completion of the liquefaction unit.
Cheniere Partners, a unit of Cheniere, took over care, custody, and control of Train 6 on February 4, according to a statement on Monday.
Bechtel built the previous five units and the three trains at Cheniere’s Corpus Christi plant.
Sabine Pass now has total production capacity of about 30 mtpa of LNG.
“The accelerated completion of Train 6 once again reflects the world-class standard of execution consistently achieved by the Cheniere and Bechtel teams, and we are proud to have the six train vision of Sabine Pass completed safely, ahead of schedule and on budget,” said Jack Fusco, CEO of Cheniere.
“With nine total trains across both the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi projects, the Cheniere liquefaction platform is the second largest in the world,” Fusco said.
