Through the consortium of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Inc. and Zachry Construction Corporation, a major construction company in the U.S., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has received an engineering, procurement and construction contract for two LNG storage tanks from Sabine Pass LNG, L.P., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cheniere Energy, Inc., a major U.S. LNG terminal owner and operator. The tanks are to be built at Cheniere's Sabine Pass LNG receiving terminal that is currently under construction on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. The order amount to the consortium is approximately 16 billion yen.

In May 2005, MHI received an order for three LNG tanks for the Sabine Pass LNG terminal from Cheniere, which marked the first LNG tank construction order in the U.S. placed to a Japanese company. The latest order is for No. 4 and 5 tanks of the terminal, bringing MHI's aggregate LNG tank orders from Cheniere to five units.

The contract calls for engineering, procurement and construction of two 160,000 cubic meter (approximately 5.65 million cubic feet) LNG storage tanks. MHI is responsible for engineering and construction of the LNG tanks, while Zachry Construction will handle civil engineering of the site and installation work of the tanks. The construction will commence next month with completion scheduled to be in the spring of 2009. When the terminal expansion that includes two additional LNG tanks is completed, the Sabine Pass LNG receiving terminal will have a natural gas processing capacity of 114 million cubic meters per day, or 4.0 Bcf/d (billion cubic feet per day).
