Corpus Christi Train 2 Delivers 1st LNG Cargo

July 5, 2019

Bechtel Corporation and Cheniere Energy  have completed the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) commissioning cargo from Train 2 at the Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) export terminal in Texas, US.

A joint press release from the firms said that through the partnership they have now delivered seven LNG trains at two sites on the U.S. Gulf Coast since 2015.

“We are pleased to have achieved another key milestone, LNG First Cargo, on the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Train 2, as part of the Commissioning and Startup process. This is the result of thoughtful planning and execution, and excellent teamwork with Bechtel,” said David Craft, Cheniere’s senior vice president Engineering and Construction.

“Together we will continue to work towards reaching other milestones for the Corpus Christi facility, including completion of Train 2 later this year and Train 3 in 2021,” David added.

“The collaboration between Cheniere and Bechtel has been critical in delivering success on these projects,” said Darren Mort, Bechtel’s LNG general manager. “This milestone shows once again that our integrated, direct-hire EPC model and our philosophy of ’design it once and build it many times’ means lower cost, shorter delivery schedules, and greater certainty of outcome for our customers.”

Since 2015, Bechtel has delivered an unprecedented 15 large-scale LNG production trains for customers around the world, including eight trains in Australia. Bechtel-delivered facilities account for roughly one-third of the global LNG capacity, supplying about 61 million tonnes of LNG each year, or enough energy to power more than 85 million homes.
