US LNG player Cheniere has been granted approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to place Sabine Pass project’s third liquefaction train in service. 

Cheniere filed a request to place the third liquefaction train in service on March 20, following the completion of the commissioning demonstration tests.

Under the FERC’s order, Cheniere can begin liquefaction and export activities from the third LNG train.

In addition, the commission staff inspected the project areas within the terminal confirming they have been stabilized and are in compliance with the terms of the previous orders.

Cheniere, that is developing up to six trains at the Sabine Pass terminal, with each train expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 million tons per annum of LNG, recently requested permission to introduce fuel gas to Train 4 to begin the commissioning process.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
