As Michael Smith, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Freeport LNG commented

This first cargo loading is another significant step that gets us one step closer towards our start of commercial operations which is anticipated later this month. We are very pleased that it took less than 45 days to load our first cargo since gas was first introduced to our liquefaction facilities.
