Freeport LNG starts operations on first liquefaction train

Freeport LNG starts operations on first liquefaction train
Freeport LNG has started commercial operations for its first liquefaction train, which is part of a multi-train liquefaction facility on Quintana Island near Freeport, Texas.

Commissioning work for Freeport LNG's Train 2 continues to progress with commercial operations expected to start in January. Construction on Freeport LNG's Train 3 is nearly complete with commercial operations expected in May 2020.

Michael Smith, founder, chairman and CEO of Freeport LNG, says: 'This is a significant milestone for Freeport LNG and we now look forward to commencing commercial operations of Trains 2 and 3.'

Freeport's three trains are expected to produce in excess of 15 mtpa and a fourth train is in development. The company has raised just over $1 billion for its Train 4 project which, combined with a contemplated bank facility, will provide the capital required for Train 4. A final investment decision for Train 4 is targeted for the first quarter of 2020. When it comes online, Freeport LNG will rank as the 8th largest LNG facility globally.
