Steel News - Published on Tue, 27 Dec 2011

TEX reported that LNG exports are scheduled to begin at Corpus Christi LNG Terminal in Texas State of USA in December 2017, which was disclosed in the data announced by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The US Cheniere Energy Inc entered the process to obtain approval to transform Corpus Christi LNG Terminal, which was originally planned for an import terminal, into a bi-directional import and export facility.

In addition to three LNG tanks with capacity of 160,000 cubic meters each and a berth available for 260,000 cubic meter LNG carrier, which are included in the original plan, three 4.5 million tonne per year LNG trains will be installed at Corpus Christi LNG Terminal.

This is the second LNG export project by Cheniere after the one through Sabine Pass LNG Terminal. The company estimates that it will take 50 months before the construction of Corpus Christi Terminal is completed. In time for the commencement of the construction work, which is slated for October 2013, the company intends to complete the approval process by September 2013.
