USA: Energy Atlantic finally docks at Sabine Pass LNG terminal

The Energy Atlantic LNG carrier, which was scheduled to pick up the first cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction and export plant, has finally docked at the facility located along the Sabine Pass River on the border between Texas and Louisiana.

The 160,000 cbm tanker has been idle offshore the Sabine Pass terminal in the Gulf of Mexico for months. According to shipping data, the Energy Atlantic docked at the Sabine Pass jetty on Saturday, March 26.

Cheniere has so far shipped three LNG cargoes from its Sabine Pass facility, the first of its kind to export U.S. shale gas to overseas markets.

The third LNG cargo has been shipped onboard the 155,000 cbm GasLog Salem LNG carrier on Saturday, the shipping data showed.

It has recently been reported that Brazil’s Petrobras is the most likely buyer of up to seven of the eight to ten commissioning cargoes from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal.

Cheniere is building liquefaction and export facilities at its existing import terminal located along the Sabine Pass River.

The company plans to construct over time up to six liquefaction trains, which are in various stages of development. Each train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of about 4.5 mtpa of LNG.

Commissioning for Train 2 at the Sabine Pass plant is expected to commence in the upcoming months.
