LNG Exports from Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi (May 20, 2015) — On the shores of the Port Corpus Christi La Quinta Channel, site work is underway for the multi-billion dollar Cheniere Energy, Inc. liquefaction terminal. Last week, the U. S. Department of Energy granted an export license to Cheniere’s Corpus Christi Liquefaction project enabling export of natural gas via the Cheniere terminal to customers in non-free trade agreement countries throughout the world. Cheniere Energy, Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has made a positive final investment decision with regards to the Corpus Christi Liquefaction project. A notice to proceed was issued to Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals, Inc. to construct the first two natural gas liquefaction trains.


Cheniere is not the first to secure export licenses, but they are on a short list of facilities that have secured environmental clearance from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and many long-term contracts ahead of the facility opening, helping to secure success of the project.


The first two trains in the Corpus Christi Liquefaction facility will export roughly 9 million tons of liquefied natural gas per year, and operations are expected to begin in 2018.
