LNG stocks were mixed Tuesday as U.S. natural gas futures fell back from levels not seen since 2008. A reported delay in the restart of Freeport LNG’s Texas export terminal appeared to trigger the price decline. Freeport LNG said Tuesday it anticipates partial operations to resume at the Quintana, Texas, export terminal in early November, vs. earlier estimates for October. The facility aims to ramp up to a sustained level of at least 2 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) by the end of November. Full capacity is not expected to return until March 2023, the company reported. The privately held company had previously estimated that its export terminal, one of the largest in the country, would be offline for only three weeks after a June 8 fire and explosion shut it down. On Aug. 4, Freeport LNG announced it agreed with regulators on steps to reopen the export terminal.
