CEO Jack Fusco said the 5 mmty liquefaction train was completed ahead of schedule and on budget five months after feed gas was introduced. The project was sanctioned in June 2019 and was initially expected to come online by 2023.

“With nine total trains across both the Sabine Pass and Corpus Christi projects, the Cheniere liquefaction platform is the second largest in the world, reliably providing our global customer base with clean, secure and affordable energy,” Fusco said.
