The the largest construction company in the United States Bechtel has joined its customer Cheniere Energy to announce production of the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Corpus Christi Liquefaction project in Texas.

The leader in project management, engineering, procurement, and construction said in a press release that this production train at the Corpus Christi project is the latest of six trains that Bechtel has delivered with Cheniere at two sites on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The Sabine Pass Liquefaction project in Louisiana produced the first LNG from that site’s fifth train last week, it said.

“These achievements further highlight the value this ongoing successful partnership with Cheniere brings for both of us,” said Bechtel Oil, Gas, and Chemicals President Alasdair Cathcart.

"We are proud to have contributed to Cheniere’s success by collaboratively delivering these LNG trains ahead of schedule and with cost certainty through our lump sum approach,” Alasdair added.

Cheniere recently announced it had also awarded Bechtel the engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the planned sixth train at the Sabine Pass liquefaction facility.

Since 2015, Bechtel has delivered an unprecedented 14 large-scale LNG production trains for customers around the world, including eight trains in Australia. These facilities are now supplying about 61 million tonnes of LNG each year to global energy markets, or enough energy to power more than 85 million homes.
