US LNG player Cheniere filed a request with the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) to introduce fuel gas into the first liquefaction train at the Corpus Christi LNG project for commissioning. 

The company requested a permit be issued by no later than June 29, 2018, according to the filing to the commission.

Cheniere noted in its filing that it has already filed the project commissioning plan for the Stage 1 with the regulator on May 25.

According to an earlier monthly report, the Corpus Christi LNG Stage 1, which includes the first two liquefaction trains, two storage tanks, west jetty and east jetty civil work has reached an overall completion of 87.1 percent. Train 1 is projected to achieve substantial completion during the first half of 2019 with the second train to follow during the second half of 2019.

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

The third train is part of Stage 2 of the project development currently at a 21.5 percent overall completion level.

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.
