Report: Freeport LNG leaks gas in venting, but 'no risk' to community

Freeport LNG Development LP said a gas leak at its export terminal on Quintana Island in Texas posed "no risk to the community," according to Brazoria County, Texas, newspaper The Facts.

The leak occurred Aug. 1, the day the company secured federal approval to begin shipping LNG cargoes produced during the facility's commissioning process.

Freeport LNG identified and contained the source of the leak, the company told the newspaper. The gas did not spread outside the process unit. The incident did not result in injuries, but all contractors were sent home and traffic was temporarily restricted as a precaution, the report said.

The leak occurred during the cool-down process for the first natural gas liquefaction train at the facility, the newspaper said, citing a company statement. As feedgas vented to a flare, the leak released gas to the air, Freeport LNG said.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission authorized the initial shipments from Freeport LNG on Aug. 1. The export terminal, which will have three trains before a planned expansion, is expected to be able to produce about 15.3 million tonnes per annum of LNG. Freeport LNG's Train 1 is slated to begin service in September. (FERC dockets CP12-509 and CP12-29)
