Freeport marks the sixth major LNG export facility to start operations in the US. Commercial deliveries are expected to begin in September, with Osaka Gas and JERA taking half of the Train 1’s offtake capacity. The introduction of feed gas into Train 1 of the natural gas liquefaction and LNG export facility marks the transition from construction to startup. Upon startup, Freeport LNG will become the first world-scale electric LNG liquefaction plant in North America. Completion comes despite two cyclones disrupting the project area during installation, McDermott said.
