Houston-based LNG player Cheniere said the commissioning of its third liquefaction train at the Sabine Pass LNG export plant in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, has been completed. 

The company said that after reaching substantial completion on March 28, the project’s EPC partner, Bechtel is turning over care, custody and control of Train 3 to Cheniere.

Under a sale and purchase agreement with Korea Gas Corporation (Kogas), the date of first commercial delivery for Train 3 of the Sabine Pass liquefaction project is expected to occur in June 2017, upon which the sale and purchase agreement’s (SPA) 20-year term commences, the company’s statement reads.

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 three liquefaction trains have now reached substantial completion, while the fourth train is in the commissioning process.

Train 5 is under construction, and Train 6 is fully permitted and being commercialized. In total, Cheniere has signed six third-party LNG SPA’s totaling approximately 19.75 mtpa of LNG from the first five liquefaction trains.
