The first train at the Freeport LNG project begins commercial operations

Near Freeport, Texas the first of four planned trains began service at the Freeport LNG project; which marks a significant start to an ambitious project. 

With the start of Train 1, Freeport LNG now turns to trains 2 and 3 beginning their commercial operations in January 2020 and May 2020, respectively.  Each train has been designed to deliver 5 million tons per annum each.  Initial LNG production at Train 2 began in early December.

In regard to customer delivery, Osaka Gas and Chubu Electric Power each have 20-year contracts for Train 1, while BP has a 20 year contract for Train 2. SK of South Korea and Total each have 20-year contracts for Train 3.

Freeport LNG has also been working on a fourth train for this project, with a Final Investment Decision being planned for the first quarter of 2020. Train 4 would add another 5 million tons per annum to the project, and upon its completion, would make the Freeport LNG project the eight largest LNG facility on record.

Freeport LNG is a joint venture comprised of Cheniere Energy, ConocoPhillips, and Dow Inc.
