Contract let for Sabine Pass LNG liquefaction trains

Cheniere Energy Partners LP selected Bechtel to provide engineering, procurement, and construction services for two new liquefaction trains at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La. The project builds on Bechtel’s previous work at Sabine Pass where the company designed, built, and expanded the LNG receiving facility.

Bechtel will design, construct, and commission the two liquefaction trains using ConocoPhillips’s Optimized Cascade technology. The liquefaction trains will be built next to the existing facilities at the Sabine Pass terminal, which include five tanks with storage capacity of 16.9 bcf, two docks that can handle vessels up to 265,000 cu m and vaporizers with regasification capacity of 4 bcfd.

Bechtel expects to begin construction in 2012.

Cheniere signed its first LNG sale and purchase agreement for production from the Sabine Pass facility in October with BG Group (OGJ Online, Oct. 26, 2011).
