Cheniere filed a request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to begin the commissioning process of its fourth liquefaction train at the Sabine Pass LNG project in Louisiana.

The company requested the permission to introduce fuel gas to Train 4 to be granted no later than March 24, 2017, in order to start the commissioning activities, according to the FERC filing.

Cheniere 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.

The first two trains have already been completed and commissioned last year and the project has already produced the commissioning cargo from its third liquefaction train in January

According to the latest weekly report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the third train is currently undergoing routine commissioning-related work to enhance the train’s operational performance.

The facility exported a total of 30 cargoes during the first two months of the year, EIA’s report shows.
