Second train at the Freeport LNG facility begins commercial production in Texas
The second train in a planned series of four trains has begun commercial sales at the Freeport LNG facility in Freeport, Texas near the Gulf of Mexico. These trains are designed for a capacity of 5 million tons per year (MMtpy) for a total of 20 MMtpy in LNG.
Train 1 began its operation last month, with train 2’s initial natural gas introduction just afterwards with today’s announcement of commercial operations completing the development of this second train. Train 3 is due to begin its market debut in May. LNG from these trains have been contracted for 20-year spans with Train 1 to Osaka Gas and Chubu Electric, Train 2 to BP, and Train 3 to Toshiba Corporation and SK E&S.
The fourth train received its approval from the U.S. Department of Energy for export to non-FTA countries in mid-2019, following approval from FERC for siting, construction, and operation.
