Cheniere Energy recently produced and exported its 1,000th LNG cargo.
This milestone cargo was exported within a four-year time period after startup, setting an industry record and making Cheniere the fastest producer in the world to reach this figure, the company claimed.
The cargoes have been exported from both the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project (SPL project) and the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project (CCL project).
“Reaching 1,000 cargoes of LNG faster than any producer in history is a testament to the performance of our people and the culture of our company. Our focus on reliability and safety through the entire LNG production process enabled us to reach this milestone, while fulfilling our commitments to our foundation customers,” said Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s President and CEO. “Cheniere will continue to focus on operational excellence to help meet growing demand for reliable, flexible, and cleaner sources of energy around the world. This achievement would not be possible without the dedication and diligence of Cheniere’s employees, our partners and customers, and we look forward to celebrating cargo 10,000.”
Cheniere’s 1,000th cargo was loaded on ‘Hoegh Galleon’ which sailed on 26th January, 2020 from Cheniere’s CCL project. Cheniere also celebrated the 100th cargo produced at CCL, which left on the ‘Yari LNG’ on 13th January, 2020.
The SPL project consists of six natural gas liquefaction trains, five of which are fully operational and one is under construction.
The CCL project involves three trains, two of which are fully operational and one is under construction and expected to be operational in 2021.
Adjacent to CCL, Cheniere is developing and commercialising its stage 3 expansion, which recently received US federal regulatory authorisation.
