US LNG exporter Cheniere has filed a request to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to introduce refrigerants to the Sabine Pass LNG train 5.
In its filing to FERC Cheniere requested the permit be granted no later than October 11, in order to continue its commissioning activities on schedule.
Cheniere has already been granted authorization to introduce feed gas for commissioning activities.
Cheniere is developing up to six trains at the Sabine Pass site, each capable of producing 4.5 mtpa of the chilled fuel each.
Mid-September Cheniere Energy has entered into a long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal with Swiss-based energy trading company Vitol for 0.7 mtpa of LNG over a 15-year period.
