Houston-based LNG player Cheniere said that during the month of April, Stage 2 (Train 3 and 4) construction reached 98 percent completion. 

In addition, work on Stage 3 reached overall completion of 65.4 percent ahead of the planned 63.4 percent, Cheniere said in its monthly report.

During the month of April, activities in Train 4 continued with a focus on the installation of A/G piping, pipe testing, pipe restoration, pipe insulation and compressor mechanical runs.

In the Train 4 compressor area, the team has completed mechanical runs on both ethylene machines and one propane machine. Mineral and synthetic lube oil flushes continue in the compressor area. Thermal oxidizer refractory dry out is complete and we commenced cold circulation of hot oil system.

On Stage 3, engineering is substantially complete with the delivery of the CO2 Absorber, the WHRU, and air coolers.

Train 4 is expected to be completed in November 2017, while Train 5 is projecting August 2019 for substantial completion.

The company 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.

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.
