Cheniere Loads 100th LNG Cargo at Sabine Pass
Texas-based Cheniere Energy Partners has shipped the 100th cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in Louisiana.
Including the 100th cargo, which departed on Saturday, April 1 from the Sabine Pass liquefaction facility, since the first shipment on February 24, 2016, Cheniere has delivered cargoes to 18 countries on five continents.
“This milestone for Cheniere is a testament to the global demand for American LNG, the hard work and dedication of Cheniere’s workforce, and our unique business model that enables customers large and small to access this fuel,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and CEO.
In February 2016, Cheniere became the first company to ship LNG from the contiguous United States in over 50 years, and is currently the only exporter of the US LNG.
In addition to three fully-operational LNG trains at Sabine Pass, train four has entered the commissioning process and is expected to reach substantial completion in the second half of 2017. Train five is currently under construction, and is expected to become operational in 2019, and train six is fully permitted and being commercialized.
In addition, Cheniere Energy currently has two trains under construction at its liquefaction project near Corpus Christi, Texas with operations at both trains expected to begin in 2019.
