BG Group and its partners have started up production from Atlantic LNG's (ALNG) Train 4 liquefaction project at the Port Fortin facility in Trinidad & Tobago.
With a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) output capacity of 5.2 million metric tonnes per annum (mtpa), Train 4 is one of the world's largest liquefaction facilities.
The completion of the $1.2bn project, which received Government approval in June 2003, brings the facility's 4 train output capacity to over 15 mtpa and enhances Trinidad & Tobago's status as the major exporter of LNG to the United States
Martin Houston, BG Group Executive Vice President North America, Caribbean and
Global LNG, said:
'BG Group and its partners have, yet again, delivered a major project in Trinidad & Tobago both ahead of schedule and to budget. The start up of Train 4 will enhance benefits from the country's indigenous hydrocarbon reserves.
'BG Group has been a committed partner in developing Trinidad & Tobago's natural resources over the last 15 years and this is set to continue. We are a key partner in all four LNG trains now in operation and an active participant in the East and North Coast offshore areas as well as the Central Block onshore area.
We continue to work closely with the Government to examine the potential for further expansion of Trinidad & Tobago's oil and gas reserves.'
