Agreements could allow LNG expansion

09 12, 2012 by The Advocate

A Cheniere Energy Partners LP subsidiary has entered agreements with Total Gas & Power North America Inc. that would provide more capacity to export liquefied natural gas from southwest Louisiana.

Cheniere’s Sabine Pass Liquefaction LLC subsidiary will get additional berthing and storage capacity at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal. The company is building four liquefaction units and the agreement with Total could be used to accommodate the development of a fifth liquefaction unit. It also provides increased flexibility in managing LNG cargo loading and unloading activity.
