The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will inspect Freeport LNG’s shuttered LNG export plant in Texas in September, the agency said on July 19.

The plant shut on June 8 because of a fire and was expected to remain out of service until October, Freeport LNG said in an email on July 19.

Both FERC and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) said they would not allow the facility to return to service until they approve the restart.
