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.
