Planned maintenance on Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana means it will be unavailable for three days next month (June).

The work means that around 1 Bcf/d of natural gas capacity on a pipeline that feeds the terminal will not be available.

The work, which involves electrical upgrades at Creole Trail Pipeline’s Gillis Compressor Station, will begin on June 19 and end on June 22.

A notice to shippers also stated that about 510 MMcf/d of the pipeline’s 1.5 Bcf/d capacity — receipts only from DTE Energy’s Louisiana Energy Access Project, or LEAP, that moves Haynesville supplies to the Gillis hub – will be available during the week.

Separate maintenance at the same compressor station is scheduled from June 7-11, though that will impact a much smaller amount of capacity.
