Cheniere Partners' Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project Update

Cheniere Partners is developing and constructing natural gas liquefaction facilities (the "Liquefaction Project") at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal adjacent to the existing regasification facilities through its wholly owned subsidiary, Sabine Pass Liquefaction, LLC ("Sabine Pass Liquefaction").

Cheniere Partners continues to make progress on its Liquefaction Project, which is being developed for up to six natural gas liquefaction trains ("Trains"), each with a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 mtpa.

The Trains are in various stages of development.

  • Construction on Trains 1 and 2 began in August 2012, and as of June 30, 2014, the overall project for Trains 1 and 2 was approximately 69% complete, which is ahead of the contractual schedule. Based on Cheniere Partners' current construction schedule, Cheniere Partners anticipates that Train 1 will produce liquefied natural gas ("LNG") as early as late 2015.
  • Construction on Trains 3 and 4 began in May 2013, and as of June 30, 2014, the overall project for Trains 3 and 4 was approximately 36% complete, which is ahead of the contractual schedule. Cheniere Partners expects Trains 3 and 4 to become operational in late 2016 and 2017, respectively.
  • Trains 5 and 6 are under development. Cheniere Partners has entered into SPAs for approximately 3.75 mtpa in aggregate that commence with the date of first commercial delivery for Train 5. Cheniere Partners has received authorizations from the Department of Energy ("DOE") to export 503 Bcf per year of LNG volumes from Trains 5 and 6 to free trade agreement ("FTA") countries. Authorization to export LNG to non-FTA countries is pending. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") authorization is also pending. Cheniere Partners will contemplate making a final investment decision to commence construction on Trains 5 and 6 based upon, among other things, entering into acceptable commercial arrangements, receiving all regulatory approvals and obtaining financing.
