The United States regulator has approved Cheniere’s request to introduce feed gas into the first liquefaction train at its Corpus Christi facility in Texas. 

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said in its filing that the request is in compliance with environmental conditions, however, Corpus Christi has to comply with all applicable remaining terms and conditions.

In addition, the regulators stressed that the approval does not grant Cheniere to introduce hazardous fluids into other project facilities at the LNG terminal.

To remind, Cheniere will introduce feed gas to Train 1 and commence commissioning of day flare.

Cheniere expects to start producing liquefied natural gas from train 1 during September with the substantial completion to be achieved in the first half of 2019.

The Corpus Christi project is a three-train liquefaction project under construction near Corpus Christi, Texas. Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of about 4.5 mtpa of LNG.

Cheniere has also set out plans for the construction of seven midscale liquefaction trains and an additional storage tank in the third stage of the project development. The Stage 3 project would increase the expected aggregate nominal LNG production capacity at the liquefaction project to approximately 23 mtpa.
