Cheniere Energy, Houston, completed the first commissioning cargo of LNG from Train 2 at the Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) export terminal in Corpus Christi, Tex., as part of the commissioning and startup process, said construction partner Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals Inc.

Through its partnership with Cheniere, Bechtel has now delivered seven LNG trains at two sites on the US Gulf Coast since 2015.

The companies are working completion of Train 2 later this year and Train 3 in 2021, said David Craft, Cheniere’s senior vice-president of engineering and construction.

Each train in the three-train CCL project is expected to have a nominal production capacity, which is prior to adjusting for planned maintenance, production reliability, and potential overdesign of 4.5 million tonnes/year of LNG.
