Freeport LNG could go public, says CEO

Freeport LNG Development CEO Michael Smith said he expects his company to launch an initial public offering in the future. 

Smith told Bloomberg he expects that Freeport LNG would be a $10 billion-plus public company at some phase during the construction of the facility.

The construction of the $14 billion facility is about to start next month with first exports expected to leave Freeport LNG in 2018.

Smith holds 57.5% of the Freeport LNG with Dow Chemical owning a 7.5% stake. Osaka Gas holds 10% while Global Infrastructure Partners earlier bought 25% stake previously held by Zachry American Infrastructure and Hastings Funds Management.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
