Sabine Pass LNG: Second train gets green light for start-up

US liquefaction player Cheniere has received authorisation to begin commissioning activities on the second train of its Sabine Pass facility a week after it shipped its first liquefied natural gas exports from the terminal.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved Cheniere's request to introduce fuel gas to Train 2 as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, according to a regulatory filing.

Market intelligence firm Genscape, which has been monitoring the Sabine Pass facility in real-time, expects to see commissioning activities start in the next few days, with "dry" runs taking place at Train 2.

"This will occur over the next several months as they perform their requirements before they introduce refrigerants and begin liquefaction," according to Genscape.
