Freeport LNG begin commercial operations at its third train on the Texas Gulf Coast.
After nearly six years of construction, the third train of the Freeport LNG project has begun commercial operations for export through the Freeport Harbor Channel. Feed gas began flowing last March, paving the way for this commercial startup. This train adds approximately 4.4 million tons per year (MMtpy) to the project’s nominal export capacity of approximately 13.2 MMtpy. Project costs were stated to be $13.5 billion, according to Freeport LNG CEO Michael Smith.
Train three follows the second train that began in January, preceded by train one in late 2019. Construction for the third train was completed by CB&I, Zachry Industrial and Chiyoda International Corporation. A fourth train with up to 5 MMtpy capacity has received the regulatory approvals needed for construction and is currently slated for a 2023 startup.
