The 100th cargo of LNG has left Cheniere Energy Partners L.P.’s Sabine Pass liquefaction facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US.
Cheniere has now delivered cargoes to 18 countries on five continents.
Jack Fusco, Cheniere's President and CEO, said: "This milestone for Cheniere is a testament to the global demand for American LNG, the hard work and dedication of Cheniere's workforce, and our unique business model that enables customers large and small to access this fuel […] Our entire workforce shares in this milestone and in Cheniere's future success."
In February 2016, Cheniere became the first company to ship LNG from the contiguous US in over 50 years, and is currently the only exporter of US LNG.
A fourth LNG train at the facility has now entered the commissioning process and is expected to reach substantial completion in 2H17. Train five is currently under construction, and is expected to become operational in 2019, and train six is fully permitted and being commercialised.
Cheniere Energy also has two trains under construction at its liquefaction project near Corpus Christi, Texas, with operations at both trains expected to begin in 2019.
