US liquefied natural gas exporter Cheniere is planning further expansion projects at its facilities at Sabine Pass in Louisiana and Corpus Christi in Texas.

Since making a positive final investment decision on building Stage 3 at Corpus Christi in late June, Cheniere has indicated that it intends to continue expansion of the facility through comments made in statements announcing new sales agreements.

Cheniere chief executive Jack Fusco said the company has already sold an additional 3 million tonnes per annum of LNG beyond the anticipated capacity of Stage 3 at Corpus Christi.
