Vessels Waiting for Freeport LNG Terminal Restart

LNG

At least four LNG vessels are waiting to load from the Freeport LNG facility in Texas according to Bloomberg ship tracking data on April 19.

  • The vessels Prism Diversity, SK Resolute, Nohshu Maru and BW Pavilion Leeara are shown positioned near the Texas export facility.
  • On April 16, reports suggested the Freeport LNG export terminal was aiming to resume output at two liquefaction trains in a few days, traders told Bloomberg. Feedgas flows to the terminal have been near zero since train 3 tripped on 9-10 April while trains 1 and 2 currently undergo maintenance.
  • Recent feedgas flows have suggested signs of a restart according to Bloomberg but the current estimation for today is still down at just 0.29bcf/d compared to full capacity of over 2bcf/d.
