The United States Federal Energy and Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved Cheniere’s request to introduce gas and commission the Corpus Christi LNG’s Train 2 fuel gas system. 

In its order, FERC noted that the approval does not grant Cheniere the authority to introduce hazardous fluids into other facilities at the LNG terminal.

Production from Train 1 started in November and Cheniere expects to reach substantial completion in the first quarter of 2019, Cheniere said in an earlier statement.

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.
