Cheniere’s LNG Facility Adds Third Dock to Boost Export Capabilities

The company is poised to become the first US LNG exporter with three docks, just as Europe desperately seeks more natural gas

Cheniere Energy Inc., the largest US exporter of liquefied natural gas, is preparing to add shipping capacity at its Louisiana terminal that will help it eke out more supplies to gas-starved European customers.

The company’s Sabine Pass facility is poised to become the first US LNG terminal with three operational loading docks. Houston-based Cheniere already made a small piece of history earlier this month when three LNG tankers — Aristarchos, Castillo de Merida and Maria Energy — were docked side-by-side.
