Cheniere Energy Inc. (NYSE American: LNG) on Jan. 3 received the go-ahead to commission Train 2 at its Corpus Christi Liquefaction LLC facility.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted the company’s request, made on Dec. 19, to introduce natural gas to Train 2. The approval allows Cheniere to begin testing the train in preparation for startup.
“Train 2 is progressing on an accelerated schedule and we expect substantial completion in the second half of this year,” a company spokesman told the Houston Chronicle.
Hundreds of oil and gas workers and supporters rallied and then testified in the unusually quick Energy and Transportation Committee hearing that took place two days after the bills introduction.
Colorado’s Senate Finance committee voted on 4-3 on March 7 to move Senate Bill 19-181 to the Appropriations Committee, which will hold its hearing on March 8. Meanwhile, opposition to the bill and it quick move through committee emerged.
Even as oil and gas production increase out of the Rockies region, the industry faces a number of pressing issues that could significantly halt this growth.
