Corpus Christi Liquefaction, LLC (Corpus Christi Liquefaction), a subsidiary of Cheniere Energy, is developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal at one of Cheniere's existing sites that was previously permitted for a regasification terminal. The proposed liquefaction project is being designed for three trains capable of producing in aggregate up to 13.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).
The Corpus Christi site is located on the La Quinta Channel on the northeast side of Corpus Christi Bay in San Patricio County, Texas, on over 1,000 acres owned or constrolled by Cheniere and is approximately 15 nautical miles from the coast. The Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project is expected to be constructed in phases, with each LNG train commencing operations approximately six to nine months after the previous train.
The Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project would be underpinned by the significant conventional and unconventional resources available across Texas and the Gulf Coast Region.
Corpus Christi Liquefaction has filed the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC) application for authorization of the proposed natural gas liquefaction terminal.
