Freeport LNG Development LP has applied with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for authorization to site, construct and operate a fourth liquefaction train at its liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility near Freeport, Texas. Freeport LNG also said it was starting front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the production train, which will have a nominal production capacity of 5.1 million tons per year. Freeport LNG says it expects to begin construction of Train 4 by the end of 2018, with operations commencing as early as 2022.

The initial three liquefaction trains of the Freeport Liquefaction Project are under construction, and are scheduled to start operations sequentially between fourth-quarter 2018 and third-quarter 2019. Each liquefaction train has a capacity in excess of 5.0 million tons per year.

About 13.4 million tons per year of the production capacity from the first three liquefaction trains have been contracted under use-or-pay liquefaction tolling agreements with Osaka Gas Company, JERA Energy America LLC, BP Energy Company, Toshiba Corporation and SK E&S LNG, LLC.
