Houston-based LNG player Cheniere and contractor Bechtel said that the Corpus Christi liquefaction project’s first train has reached substantial completion. 

Cheniere said the commissioning of train 1 is complete and Bechtel has turned over care, custody and control to Cheniere.

Under sale and purchase agreements with Endesa and PT Pertamina (Persero), the date of first commercial delivery is expected to occur in June 2019, upon which the term of each of these SPAs commences.

Additionally, bridging volumes are expected to begin in June 2019 under an SPA with Iberdrola, Cheniere said on Monday.

The Corpus Christi facility consists of three large-scale LNG production units and supporting infrastructure, with an additional seven smaller trains proposed.

Train 2 is expected to reach substantial completion in the second half of 2019, with Train 3 to follow in the second half of 2021.

The facility will also feature three LNG storage tanks with a capacity of approximately 10.1 billion cubic feet equivalent and two marine berths.

The seven smaller trains currently under development would increase the facility’s total expected nominal production capacity to approximately 23 million tons per annum (mtpa), Cheniere said.
