The first tanker to take on liquefied natural gas from the Sabine Pass export terminal has arrived at the facility, according to energy monitor Genscape.
The Asia Vision had been waiting in the Gulf of Mexico, along with the Energy Atlantic, for many weeks while the Cheniere Energy-owned export facility dealt with delays in the startup of its first liquefaction unit, according to Genscape. The Asia Vision will apparently take Sabine Pass’s first LNG exports, with Brazil or Europe the most likely destination.
Last month, Houston-based Cheniere announced that instrumentation issues would delay the first LNG exports at Sabine Pass from late January to late February or March.
The Energy Atlantic was still waiting in the Gulf as of Sunday, according to Genscape.
