Requisition ID:  256604

Requisition Posting End Date: 

Project Overview

The Cheniere Corpus Christi Liquefaction (CCL) Project is a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facility located on the north shore of Corpus Christi Bay in Gregory, Texas. The 1,000+ acre facility started bulk early works in July 2015 as the first greenfield export facility in the United States. Bechtel has successfully and safely completed construction and it now consists of three operating Trains utilizing the ConocoPhillips Optimized Cascade™ process with an LNG production capacity of approximately 15 million tons per year (MTPA), three LNG storage tanks with combined capacity of 480,000 cubic meters of LNG, 2 Jetty superstructures that can accommodate the world’s largest vessels, and dozens of associated buildings and utilities.


Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project Stage 3 (CCL3) is a new phase at the existing CCL facility and will consist of seven midscale liquefaction trains with an LNG production capacity of approximately 10 MTPA utilizing Chart IPSMR™ liquefaction technology, and associated infrastructure including utilities. CCL3 will perform all this work predominantly on a direct hire basis with support from only a few specialty and service subcontractors.


Position Summary
The Materials Coordinator (MC) implements the Project Material Management Plan (MMP) and coordinates the Specification, Identification and Quantification work processes with Engineering and Construction during front-end activities in the Project office. The MC ensures consistent material identification methodology and clearly defined commodity work process responsibilities between project functions allow for an efficient and economical purchase and supply process. On small to medium sized projects, the MC may transition to the jobsite as part of the Construction organization to perform materials coordination responsibilities and track the availability of materials to support the construction schedule.
