Freeport LNG gets OK to start introducing gas into third train

Freeport LNG has secured approval from the US FERC to start introducing natural gas into the third liquefaction train at its three-train 15 mtpa liquefaction plant in Texas as part of the restart process.

According to a filling dated February 1, the FERC granted Freeport LNG’s request to “start commissioning, including cooldown, of the LNG rundown piping system and LNG train 3 (Unit 13).”

In addition, Freeport LNG received approval to “modify the Loop 1 and Dock 1 Cooldown Procedure,” the filling said.

The LNG terminal operator will need to secure additional authorization to “reinstate service for Loop 1 LNG circulation to enable ship loading to Dock 1 and to reinstate service of the liquefaction trains, including rundown piping to tanks.”

Freeport LNG must also comply with any applicable PHMSA and US Coast Guard requirements, the filling said.

The terminal in Texas has been offline for some seven months due to an incident that took place on June 8 last year.

Freeport LNG asked FERC on January 30 to start introducing natural gas into the third liquefaction train.

The company recently won approval from FERC to start introducing LNG into the piping system at the plant.

BP, Jera, Osaka Gas, SK E&S, as well as TotalEnergies have long-term contracts with Freeport LNG.
