Cheniere’s Corpus Christi is moving ahead with construction of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Texas. 

According to the latest filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Cheniere has progressed the project’s Stage 1 to 84 percent completion. Stage 1 includes the construction of liquefaction trains 1 and 2, storage tanks A and C, OSBL, west jetty and east jetty civil works.

Subcontract and direct hire construction work are 66.3 percent and 64.3 percent complete, the filing reads, noting the projected substantial completion of the first liquefaction train is the first half of 2019, with the second liquefaction train to follow in the second half of the year.

Stage 1 continued progressing work in pipe completion, testing, and critical path systems. In February, the OSBL work focused on the water treatment plant and compressed air generation unit to be ready to turn over to the commissioning and startup team in the next two months.

Major highlights for February included flushing synthetic oil systems in Train 1 refrigeration compressors, preparation for installation of dry gas seals, completion of testing feed gas lines, and energization of the control building substation in the OSBL.

Construction has turned 76 systems over to the commissioning and startup team through the end of February, the filing reads.
