Liquefaction Project

Port Arthur Liquefaction Project

Port Arthur LNG Phase 1, already under construction, will help meet global demand for LNG. The liquefaction project will provide a reliable supply of LNG to energy markets around the world.

The Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project is fully permitted and designed to include two natural gas liquefaction trains, two LNG storage tanks and associated facilities with a nameplate capacity of approximately 13 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa), nameplate capacity. Total capital expenditures for the Port Arthur Phase 1 project are estimated at $13 billion.

The long-term contractable capacity of approximately 13 Mtpa is fully subscribed under binding long-term agreements with strong counterparties — ConocoPhillips, RWE Supply and Trading, PKN ORLEN S.A., INEOS and ENGIE S.A., all of which became effective upon reaching final investment decision (FID).

Additionally, a 3.5-mile portion of Highway 87 between the Intracoastal Waterway and Keith Lake Pass, which extends to the community of Sabine Pass, was relocated to accommodate the project and built to Texas Department of Transportation standards.

Bechtel has been selected to be the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) contractor. Construction commenced on Phase 1 of Port Arthur LNG at the end of March 2023.

Phase 1 Rendering

Phase 1 is designed to include:

  • Two natural gas liquefaction trains capable of producing, under nameplate capacity, up to approximately 13 Mtpa
  • Two LNG storage tanks
  • Marine facilities, including a marine berth for LNG vessel berthing and loading of LNG
  • Natural gas liquids and refrigerant storage
  • Feed gas pre-treatment
  • Truck loading and unloading areas

Strategic Location

The project is located along the Sabine-Neches ship channel, a strategic location near abundant natural gas resources with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Access to robust, North-American interstate gas pipeline system
  • Large contiguous site with large laydown areas
  • Channel is maintained for deep draft vessels (Q-Max)
