New Fortress sees first LNG from Mexico Altamira export plant by end Q4

(Reuters) - U.S. energy company New Fortress Energy expects to produce the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) at its Altamira export plant in Mexico by the end of the year, it said on Wednesday.

Atlamira will be Mexico's first LNG export plant.

The company, which made the announcement in its third quarter earnings release, said the LNG would be produced at its first Fast LNG (FLNG) liquefaction train, which is capable of turning about 0.18 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas into around 1.4 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG.

New Fortress said gas for the first train would come from the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline from Texas.

New Fortress, which has said the first Fast LNG train would cost about $1 billion, did not provide a timeline for its proposed Fast LNG Trains 2-5.
