USA: Sabine Pass construction slightly behind schedule
Houston-based Cheniere said that overall construction on its Sabine pass liquefaction and export project is slightly behind schedule.
“Overall, Train 1 and 2 project progress is 96.1% complete against a plan of 98.2%. Train 3 and 4 project progress is 76.7% complete against a plan of 81.8%,” Cheniere said in the October report filed with the U.S. FERC.
However, Cheniere said that the current project progress supports the planned completion for Trains 1 and 2 by March and June in 2016, respectively. Trains 3 and 4 targeted substantial completion dates are April and August 2017.
Cheniere is building liquefaction and export facilities at its existing import terminal located along the Sabine Pass River on the border between Texas and Louisiana.
The Sabine Pass facility is expected to start receiving feed gas by the end of the year with the first cargo to be shipped in January 2016.
