Liquefaction Facilities: Midscale Trains 1-7
Corpus Christi Liquefaction Stage III, LLC (“CCL Stage III”) will construct and operate an expansion of the Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC” or the “Commission”) in FERC Docket No. CP12-507-000, which is currently under construction (the “Liquefaction Project”). The expansion of the Liquefaction Project consists of the addition of seven midscale liquefaction trains and one liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) storage tank (“Stage 3 LNG Facilities”). The Stage 3 Project will have a total aggregate expected nominal production capacity of approximately 10 million tonnes per annum (“mtpa”) of LNG. FERC approved the Stage 3 project in November 2019 and the project is expected to receive FID in 2020.
Cheniere Corpus Christi Pipeline, L.P. (“CCPL”) proposes to construct new associated bi-directional interstate natural gas pipeline facilities (the “Stage 3 Pipeline”) in order to deliver feed gas to the Stage 3 LNG Facilities. The Stage 3 Pipeline will include a new 21-mile-long, 42-inch-diameter pipeline that would run parallel to CCPL’s 48-inch-diameter pipeline approved by the Commission in Docket No. CP12-508-000 (“Corpus Christi Pipeline”). The Stage 3 LNG Facilities and Stage 3 Pipeline are collectively referred to as the “Stage 3 Project”.
