Cheniere Energy has substantially completed the third train of the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project (Corpus Christi LNG Project) valued at $ 15 billion in Texas, United States.

The commissioning of train 3 of the LNG export terminal in Corpus Christi has been completed.

Cheniere Energy said in a statement, “With the achievement of substantial completion, the financial results of LNG sales of Train 3 will be reflected in the future operational schedule of Cheniere and its respective affiliates.”

The three-step Corpus Christi LNG project will have a total capacity of 23 million tons per year (mtpa).

The first two trains comprise stage 1 of the LNG export terminal, the third train marks the second stage, while a maximum of seven medium-sized liquefaction trains are being developed alongside the three main trains under the third stage.

The liquefaction project is supplied with feed gas from the Eagle Ford Shale.

Each of the three main liquefaction trains will have a production capacity of nearly 4.5 mPa LNG, while the trains in the third stage of the Corpus Christi LNG project will have a capacity of nearly 9.5 mPa.

Bechtel is the planning, construction and commissioning company for the three main LNG trains of the Corpus Christi LNG project. The trains are based on the ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade process.

Cheniere said its subsidiaries and Bechtel completed a total of eight liquefaction trains on the Corpus Christi liquefaction project and the Sabine Pass liquefaction project ahead of their scheduled dates.
