Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG plant resumes ops after Laura

US LNG exporter Cheniere said Wednesday it resumed normal operations at its Sabine Pass plant in Louisiana following Hurricane Laura.

Laura made landfall on August 27 near the Texas-Louisiana border as a strong Category 4 storm, one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the region.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass plant and Sempra’s Cameron facility were located in the direct path of the hurricane. Both facilities suspended operations and implemented a controlled shutdown.

Sabine Pass operations resumed but damaged electric transmission infrastructure near Cameron LNG could keep the plant offline for some time.

The US LNG exports have been low for months as Covid-19 destroyed global demand pushing down prices to record lows.

But now Laura has added further pressure to LNG exporters and it may take weeks for affected plants to recover to pre-Hurricane levels.

Cheniere’s 25 mpta Sabine Pass plant has five operational trains and is currently the largest such facility in the US.

Furthermore, Cheniere is also adding an additional unit and the third jetty to the plant.
