Corpus Christi LNG 3rd stage is 24.5% complete, expecting further expansion
Cheniere-operated Corpus Christi LNG 3rd stage project is 24.5% complete, expecting full filing for further expansion in 2023-Q1
Cheniere has said that its CCL Stage 3 LNG project has been 24.5% complete by the end of last month as its “engineering 41.3% complete, procurement 36.9% complete, subcontract work 29.5% complete and construction 2.2% complete.”
The operator is constructing the brownfield project adjacent to the Corpus Christi LNG exports project (CCL Project) in Texas.


According to the Global LNG Database®, the CCL Stage 3 project is a fully permitted project consisting of up to 7 midscale trains, each with liquefaction capacity of about 1.49 MMT/Y of LNG with a total production capacity of more than 10 MMT/Y. “The project is commercially underpinned by long-term agreements with creditworthy counterparties.”
Cheniere has remarked that the CCL Stage 3 project would provide much-needed volumes to the global LNG market by the end of 2025. “The Corpus Christi Stage III Project commences as global LNG market fundamentals highlight the criticality of natural gas in the global energy mix. We look forward to providing our customers with reliable and flexible LNG from the Corpus Christi Stage III Project starting in 2025.”


Cheniere made a positive FID on the CCL Stage 3 project in June and issued full notice to proceed (FNTP) with construction to Bechtel Corporation as it had entered into a lumpsum, turnkey, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with the major engineering company for the project in March 2022.
Last year, Chart Industries received the FNTP for its IPMSR® gas liquefaction process and equipment activities to be used in CCL Stage 3 project. The orders were received from the project’s main EPC contractor Bechtel.


Cheniere is also developing an expansion project adjacent to the CCL Stage 3 project consisting of two midscale Trains with an expected total production capacity of approximately 3 MMT/Y of LNG. In September 2022, the operator entered the pre-filing review process with the FERC, expecting full filing by the end of first quarter of 2023.
