  • Yesterday, FERC issued an order approving Cheniere Energy affiliate Sabine Pass LNG’s application to construct liquefaction Trains 5 and 6 at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Cameron Parish, La., and to expand the capacity of the interconnected pipeline. The expansion would increase the Liquefaction Project’s total authorized production capacity from approximately 20 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), or 2.76 Bcf per day, to approximately 29 mtpa, or 4.14 Bcf per day. Sabine Pass has entered into sales and purchase agreements with Total Gas & Power North America, Inc. and Centrica PLC to deliver 101 Bcf and 88.3 Bcf per year of LNG, respectively, covering most of the Train 5 capacity. The sale and purchase of Train 6 capacity is still under negotiation.
