Houston-based LNG player Cheniere received permission to introduce gas and refrigerants to the fourth liquefaction train at its Sabine Pass LNG export facility in Louisiana. 

In its approval of Cheniere’s request filed on May 26, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission added that the approval does not grant Cheniere the authority to commence the construction or commissioning of other project facilities at the LNG terminal.

FERC said in its filing that the project has to comply with all applicable remaining terms and conditions.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility is ramping up its export volumes with 18 cargoes, totaling about 61 billion cubic feet, exported from its first three liquefaction trains in May, a record monthly volume since February last year.

The company is developing up to six trains at its Sabine Pass terminal with each train expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 million tons per annum.

According to a previous filing, Cheniere expects the fourth train to reach substantial completion in the second half of 2017.
