Cheniere wins approval to introduce feed gas to sixth Sabine Pass train

US LNG exporter Cheniere has won approval to introduce feed gas to the sixth production train at its Sabine Pass liquefaction plant in Louisiana.

LNG Prime reported last week that the firm’s unit was seeking approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

FERC said in a filing dated September 22 it had granted Sabine Pass to introduce feed gas to commission “certain portions of Train 6.”

The energy regulator added that this approval does not grant Sabine Pass the authority to
commission other project facilities at the LNG facility.

Cheniere’s chief executive Jack Fusco said in August the firm had started early commissioning activities at the sixth Sabine Pass production train.

Fusco also said that the project had reached 89.6 percent completion as of the end of June.

In addition, Cheniere expects substantial completion at the liquefaction unit in the first quarter of 2022.

The 25 mtpa Sabine Pass plant has five operational trains and is currently the largest such facility in the US.

Bechtel is building the sixth train which will add 5 mtpa of capacity to the facility.

In total, this is the ninth train the engineering giant is building for Cheniere, including the Corpus Christi plant where Bechtel handed over the third train earlier this year.
