Summary Information

  • Ownership: Cheniere
  • Website: http://www.cheniere.com/
  • Location: Corpus Christi, Texas, USA
  • Capacity: 13.5 million tons/annum (3*4.5 million Ton Trains)
  • Status: Planned

Brief Description

  • The Project would enable Cheniere to export 2.1 billion standard cubic feet (Bscf) per day of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and import sufficient LNG volume to send out 400 million standard cubic feet (MMscf) per day of natural gas.
  • The proposed facilities associated with the LNG Terminal include the following:
    • liquefaction facilities, including three liquefaction trains each capable of liquefying approximately 700 MMscf per day of natural gas; equivalent to13.5 million tonnes per annum ("mtpa").
    • vaporization facilities, including two trains of ambient air vaporizers and send out pumps each capable of vaporizing sufficient LNG volume for each to send out approximately 200 MMscf per day of natural gas;
    • LNG storage facilities, including three LNG storage tanks each capable of storing LNG equivalent to approximately 3.4 Bscf of natural gas; and
    • marine terminal with two LNG carrier berths.
  • The Project would also include 23 miles of new 48-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline and two compressor stations which total 53,260 horsepower. Cheniere would install additional ancillary facilities along the pipeline including six meter stations, five mainline valves, and a pig launcher and receiver.
  • The project is to be built in two stages:
    • Stage 1: Two LNG trains, two tanks, one complete berth and a second partial berth - $7.1 billion
    • Stage 2: One LNG train, one additional tank and completion of the second berth - $2.4 billion

Technical Details

  • Storage capacity: 3* 160,000 m3
  • Constructor: Bechtel: Two lump sum turnkey contracts for the engineering, procurement and construction ("EPC") of LNG trains and related facilities
  • Licensor: ConocoPhillips* Licensor: Conocophillips
