Cheniere’s Corpus Christi liquefaction project located on the U.S. Gulf Coast has reached 77.4 percent completion.
According to the Houston-based LNG player’s monthly report, the engineering has been completed with the procurement reaching 91 percent. Subcontract and direct hire construction work are at 51.1 percent and 52.1 percent respectively.
The site has generally been restored from the impacts of Hurricane Harvey, the October report reads.
Clean-up efforts are near completion and the major temporary warehouses have been repaired with most of the permanent plant equipment and bulk material have been inspected, with repairs and/or replacements underway.
During October the energization of the GIS and main substation was completed, the setting of Train 1 waste heat recovery units and GT stacks have started, Train 1 mineral lube oil flushes and oil flashes for Methane and Ethylene Refrigeration Compressors also started during the month, as well as Derrick structure erection. Construction turned over 20 systems to startup through the end of October.
Cheniere has recently completed its FEED study on a midscale liquefaction solution for the Corpus Christi expansion project and began the process of amending the filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to incorporate midscale liquefaction technology.
The project involves up to seven midscale liquefaction trains adjacent to the Corpus Christi liquefaction project, each with an expected nominal production capacity of approximately 1.4 mtpa of LNG. The total expected nominal production capacity of the seven midscale trains is approximately 9.5 mtpa.
