Cheniere Energy recently informed the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that its Corpus Christi liquefaction project has reached 32.5 percent completion.

In its March report, Cheniere revealed that the engineering has reached 97.1 percent while procurement progressed to 46 percent. Bechtel’s direct hire construction through March has progressed to 4.6 percent.

Engineering focused on continuing to update the design for power plans, lighting plans, and grounding plans.

During the month of March, 4427 tons of structural steel and 1910 tons of rebar were delivered to the site.

Construction focused on progressing permanent plant concrete and steel, underground pipe, and above ground pipe. For site preparation work, construction completed the sheet piles at the material offloading facility (MOF), site preparation at bed 24, and weir box number 12.

In the month of March, Bechtel completed concrete placements for the Tank A second wall lift, Train 1 compressor area ethylene columns, Train 2 compressor area methane mat base slab as well as continued OSBL concrete installation in refrigerant storage area, flare knockout drums, and OSBL utility pipe racks.

Structural steel erection continued in cryo pipe rack and OSBL utility pipe rack. On March 11, 2016, above ground piping in the cryo pipe rack commenced, Cheniere informed.

Dredging continued through March 7 and then was temporarily shut down to allow marine construction to progress further. It is anticipated to commence again in May 2016.
