Freeport LNG has shipped the first LNG commissioning cargo for Train 1 from its liquefaction facility located on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas.

Approximately 150,000 cubic meters of LNG were loaded aboard the LNG Jurojin, which departed from the Freeport LNG terminal on September 3, the project developer said on Tuesday.

“This first cargo loading is another significant step that gets us one step closer towards our start of commercial operations which is anticipated later this month,” said Michael Smith, founder, chairman and CEO, Freeport LNG.

Freeport’s Train 2 is advancing pre-commissioning to support an in-service date of January 2020. Train 3 is nearing completion to support an in-service date of May 2020.

The project is also planning to develop the fourth liquefaction train which is expected to add over 5 million tonnes per annum of LNG production, increasing the total export capability of the facility to over 20 mtpa.

Approximately 13.5 mtpa of this capacity was contracted under 20-year tolling agreements to Osaka Gas, JERA Energy, BP, Total, and SK E&S LNG, and approximately 0.5 mtpa was contracted to Trafigura under a 3-year sale and purchase agreement beginning in 2020.
