Chevron takes more Sabine Pass LNG capacity

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 5 -- Chevron Global Gas has exercised its option to increase the regasification capacity it has reserved at the Cheniere Energy Inc. Sabine Pass LNG import terminal under construction in Cameron Parish, La., to 1 bcfd from 700 MMcfd.

The 2.6 bcfd terminal will have two docks and three LNG storage tanks with total storage capacity equivalent to 10.1 bcf. Terminal operations are expected to commence in 2008 (OGJ Online, Apr. 12, 2005). Cheniere has applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to increase the terminal's regasification capacity to 4 bcfd.

Last month, Chevron signed a binding agreement with Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP to ship as much as 1 bcfd of gas on a new 3.2 bcfd pipeline from the Sabine Pass terminal and 600 MMcfd on an interconnect to an adjacent pipeline (OGJ Online, Nov. 7, 2005).
