OAK BROOK -- Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corp. recently signed a subcontract with Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals for the Train 6 and Third Berth expansions at the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project for subsidiaries of Cheniere Energy Partners.
Cheniere Partners, through its subsidiaries, proposes to construct and operate an expansion of the existing Sabine Pass liquefied natural gas facility, located in Cameron Parish, Louisiana on the Sabine Pass Channel. The proposed expansion of the LNG terminal consists of the addition of a third marine berth and supporting facilities. The third berth will be used to load LNG vessels for export and is sized to accommodate vessels with a capacity of 125,000 to 180,000 cubic meters.
Great Lakes' subcontract to Bechtel involves the dredging of the third marine berth, which is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2020. Great Lakes, Bechtel and Cheniere are conscious of the biodiverse environment where the work will be performed and pledge to preserve that as well as commit to work safely.
