Cheniere Energy Inc has produced and exported its 1,000th cargo of LNG, it has announced. In doing so it has set an industry record and become the fastest producer in the world to reach this point. 

It said all these cargos have been produced from its Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project (SPL) and Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project (CCL). 

Jack Fusco, Cheniere’s president and CEO said: “Our focus on reliability and safety through the entire LNG production process enabled us to reach this milestone, while fulfilling our commitments to our foundation customers.” 

He added that Cheniere will continue to focus on operational excellence to help “meet growing demand for reliable, flexible, and cleaner sources of energy around the world”.

The 1,000th cargo departed on the vessel Hoegh Galleon on January 26 from Cheniere’s CCL Project. Elsewhere, the company also celebrated the 100th cargo produced at the CCL Project, which departed on the vessel Yari LNG on January 13.

The SPL Project consists of six natural gas liquefaction trains, five of which are fully operational and one of which is under construction. 

The CCL Project, which is in south Texas, consists of three trains, two of which are fully operational and one of which is under construction and expected to be operational in 2021. 

Adjacent to the CCL Project, Cheniere said it is developing and commercialising its Stage 3 expansion, which recently received federal regulatory authorisation.
