Freeport LNG has announced that it has received regulatory approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) to restart Train 1, the final train of Freeport LNG’s three-train liquefaction facility to receive restart authorisation.  

Freeport LNG’s Trains 2 and 3 returned to full commercial operation recently, reaching production levels more than 1.5 billion cubic feet (42.5 million m³)  per day. 

As the recommissioning of Freeport’s liquefaction facility continues and trains are restarted, changes in feed gas flows and production rates are to be anticipated, given the duration of the plant’s outage. 

The facility has been out of commission since June 2022, after a pipeline rupture and an explosion took the terminal offline.  

The restart of operations will establish full three-train production and is anticipated to occur over the next few weeks.
