Cheniere takes over at Corpus Christi Train 2

Liquefaction player handed keys to facility after it reached substantial completion

Cheniere Energy has taken over operations at the second train at its Corpus Christi liquefied natural gas export facility in Texas.

Engineering, procurement and construction contractor Bechtel handed the keys over to Cheniere after the facility achieved substantial completion on 28 August, according to a release.

"Commissioning is complete and Cheniere’s EPC partner Bechtel...has turned over care, custody, and control of Train 2 to Cheniere," the liquefaction player said.

The first commercial delivery is expected in May 2020 under sale and purchase agreements with customers including French utility EDF and Spain's Iberdrola.

A third train at Corpus Christi LNG is under construction and is expected to be online in the second half of 2021.

Meanwhile, the sixth train at the company's flagship Sabine Pass LNG terminal is scheduled to be in service in the first half of 2023.
