Corpus Christi’s Train 2 delivers first cargo

Bechtel, Cheniere partnership delivers seventh liquefaction train at US Gulf Coast site since 2015

US liquefaction player Cheniere Energy and US contractor Bechtel have completed the first liquefied natural gas commissioning cargo from Train 2 at the Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) export terminal in Texas.

The partnership has delivered seven liquefaction trains at two sites on the US Gulf Coast since 2015, Bechtel said on Thursday.

The first production of LNG from Train 1 was achieved in November last year.

The three-train facility has an aggregate nominal production capacity of up to 13.5 million tonnes per annum of liquefied natural gas. The first and second trains have a 4.5 million tpa capacity.

“We are pleased to have achieved another key milestone, LNG First Cargo, on the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Train 2, as part of the commissioning and startup process,” Cheniere engineering and construction senior vice-president, David Craft said.

“Together, we will continue to work towards reaching other milestones for the Corpus Christi facility, including the completion of Train 2 later this year and Train 3 in 2021,” Craft said.

In December, Cheniere requested approval from US regulators to begin commissioning activities on the second train and on 26 February also asked to introduce feed gas.

Earlier this year, the company also asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for permission to place Train 1 into service.
