Freeport LNG's long-shut LNG export plant in Texas was on track to receive pipeline natural gas on Dec. 20, according to data from Refinitiv, a possible sign the plant might return to service by the end of the year as the company has projected.

Refinitiv said Freeport was on track to receive about 25 MMcf/d of feedgas on Dec. 20.

That would be the first gas to flow to the plant since late July and August when Freeport was pulling in around 22 MMcf/d of gas to fuel a power plant that generated electricity sold to the Texas power grid during an extreme heat wave.

Officials at Freeport were not immediately available for comment on why gas was expected to flow to the plant on Dec. 20.
