“Cheniere’s E & C Way of Slaying Dragons

The presentation will identify several activities Cheniere utilizes that have led to project execution successes. These activities include identification of several key principles that include “What we believe in”, “What we have accomplished”, and “What we value”. Adherence to these initiatives have allowed Cheniere to realize world class recognition. There are three key areas of project execution strategy that have defined the basis for Cheniere’s project execution successes: Permitting, Import/Export Strategy, and overcoming physical site challenges.
