Reuters, June 4, 2019

Cheniere Energy Inc. announced on Monday that it will build the sixth liquefaction train at its Louisiana Sabine Pass LNG export terminal. The LNG company said it is also expecting to make a decision as early as 2020 regarding the addition of additional capacity in a third stage at its Corpus Christi LNG export terminal in Texas. 

Cheniere, the largest supplier of U.S. LNG and the largest buyer of gas in the country, gave lead contractor, Betchel, the go-ahead to proceed with construction of Sabine 6. The unit is expected to enter service in 2023.
