First LNG Cargo Departs from Sabine Pass

The first commissioning cargo with liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from the first liquefaction train of Cheniere Partners’ Sabine Pass liquefaction project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, has departed the terminal earlier today, according to the vessel’s AIS data.

As informed by Cheniere on Wednesday, the LNG was last loading on the LNG carrier Asia Vision, chartered by Cheniere Marketing, LLC and was set to depart imminently, heading to Brazil.

Marine Traffic’s AIS tracking data shows the vessel departed Sabine Pass approxmately five hours ago and is underway using engine.

As World Maritime News reported, the 2014-built 160,000 cum tanker arrived at the terminal on Sunday after spending almost two months anchored in the Gulf of Mexico, pending loading.

“Today (February 24) we will finish loading the first commissioning cargo of LNG from our Sabine Pass LNG terminal. This historic event opens a new chapter for the country in energy trade and is a significant milestone for Cheniere as we prepare Train 1 for commercial operations,” said Neal Shear, Chairman of the Board and Interim Chief Executive Officer of Cheniere Partners.

The Sabine Pass LNG terminal includes existing infrastructure of five LNG storage tanks with capacity of approximately 16.9 billion cubic feet equivalent, two docks that can accommodate vessels with nominal capacity of up to 266,000 cubic meters and vaporizers with regasification capacity of approximately 4.0 Bcf/d.

Cheniere Partners, through its subsidiary, Sabine Pass Liquefaction, is developing and constructing natural gas liquefaction facilities at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal adjacent to the existing regasification facilities. Cheniere Partners plans to construct over time up to six liquefaction trains, which are in various stages of construction and development. Each liquefaction train is expected to have a nominal production capacity of approximately 4.5 million tonnes per annum (“mtpa”) of LNG.
