Top U.S. LNG exporter Cheniere Energy Inc. asked federal regulators on Dec. 8 to extend the amount of time it has to build the proposed Stage 3 expansion at its Corpus Christi LNG export plant in Texas due to pandemic delays.

When the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved construction of Stage 3 in November 2019, the regulator gave Cheniere five years, or until around November 2024, to complete the project.

Cheniere asked FERC in a filing late on Dec. 7 to extend the amount of time it has to put Stage 3 into service until June 2027.
