Cheniere Energy Inc. affiliates were given permission to begin commissioning the fourth liquefaction train at the Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana.
FERC on March 24 granted Sabine Pass Liquefaction LLC and Sabine Pass LNG LP's request to introduce fuel gas to train 4 days after the commission approved the companies to put in service train 3, which had been undergoing commissioning activities since September 2016.
Train 1 was completed in May 2016, and train 2 received FERC approval to enter service in October 2016. Train 5 is planned for August 2019, and train 6 is fully permitted but does not have a final investment decision. Each train is designed to be able to produce 4.5 million tonnes per annum.
