“This 20-year agreement with Sabine Pass Liquefaction continues our momentum on Train 6, where early engineering, procurement, and site preparation activities have recently commenced ahead of a final investment decision. We expect this SPA to support our continued progress toward a final investment decision in 2019,” Jack Fusco, Chairman, President and CEO of Cheniere Partners, said.
The SPA is subject to certain conditions precedent, including but not limited to Sabine Pass Liquefaction making a final investment decision to construct Train 6 of the SPL Project.
