The company to build 8th LNG train for Cheniere on the US Gulf Coast

Bechtel, a global leader in project management, engineering, procurement, and construction, has received full notice to proceed for the construction of Train 3 expansion of the Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) project in Texas. The facility is owned and operated by Cheniere Energy Inc.

“I would like to recognize the Cheniere team, our financial partners, our EPC partner, Bechtel, and our long-term customers at the CCL project for their demonstrated teamwork, commitment and execution, which were critical elements in the successful commercialization and financing of Train 3,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s president and chief executive officer.

“This expansion supports Cheniere’s further growth in the LNG market and we take pride in being part of their achievement,” said Darren Mort, Bechtel’s LNG general manager.

The work on the CCL expansion includes construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) train, an LNG tank, and the completion of a second LNG loading berth, in addition to the existing construction of two LNG trains, two tanks, and a docking facility. The expansion will add 4.5 million tonnes of LNG per year to the plant capacity.

Cheniere’s decision to proceed with the expansion of its LNG program is the first new liquefaction capacity announced in the United States since 2015.

Bechtel is the global leader in the LNG industry. The company has delivered 11 LNG trains and 47.5 million tonnes per year of global LNG capacity in less than four years, including three liquefaction facilities on Curtis Island in Australia.
