Corpus Christi 3rd stage is 12% complete, Sabine Pass LNG 3rd berth completed
Cheniere has said that Corpus Christi 3rd stage is 12% complete as Sabine Pass LNG 3rd berth completed.
Cheniere Energy has announced that substantial completion of the third marine berth at the Sabine Pass LNG export project (SPL Project) in Cameron Parish, Louisiana “has been achieved". The berth is capable to accommodate the 266,000-CM LNG ships.


Cheniere is also constructing an expansion adjacent to the Corpus Christi LNG exports project (CCL Project) in Texas, consisting of seven midscale trains with an “expected” total production capacity of over 10 MMT/Y of LNG (CCL Stage 3 Project) which is 12% complete.
The operator had made a positive FID on the CCL Stage 3 Project in June and issued full notice to proceed with construction to Bechtel Energy Inc. “We look forward to reinforcing our reputation on execution and bringing much-needed new LNG supply to the market from Corpus Christi Stage 3 beginning in late 2025,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s CEO.
In addition, Cheniere is developing an expansion adjacent to the Corpus Christi Stage 3 Project consisting of two midscale Trains with an "expected" total production capacity of approximately 3 MMT/Y of LNG (CCL Midscale Trains 8 & 9 Project). The company has already “initiated” the pre-filing review process with the FERC.


As of October 31, 2022, approximately 2,450 cumulative LNG cargoes totaling over 165 MMT of LNG have been produced, loaded and exported from Cheniere’s liquefaction projects [1,850 cargoes from the 30 MMT/Y Sabine Pass LNG project and 600 cargoes from the 15 MMT/Y Corpus Christi LNG project], the operator said in its third quarter results report, adding that during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, it exported 558 and 1,705 TBTU of LNG, respectively, from its liquefaction projects.


During third quarter of 2022, Cheniere’s subsidiaries signed new long-term LNG contracts with PetroChina (for 1.8 MMT/Y from 2026 through 2050) and PTT (for 1 MMT/Y from 2026 through 2050), representing an aggregate of over 60 MMT/Y of LNG through 2050.
