Texas Freeport LNG export plant shut during Tropical Storm Nicholas

09/14/2021 | 12:03pm EDT

Sept 14 (Reuters) - U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) company Freeport LNG said on Tuesday all three liquefaction trains at its export plant in Texas shut, likely due to power outages from Tropical Storm Nicholas.

The company said it continues to "assess everything" and there was "no other damage to report at this time."

The center of Nicholas was located about 30 miles (55 kilometers) southeast of Houston and could cause life-threatening flash floods across the Deep South during the next couple of days, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

At its peak Tuesday morning, Nicholas knocked out power to more than 529,000 homes and businesses in Texas, mostly in the Houston area.

Earlier in the day, all four U.S. LNG export plants along the Gulf of Mexico were in service, according to pipeline feedgas data from Refinitiv.

Three of the plants, Freeport and Cheniere Energy Inc's Corpus Christi in Texas and Sabine Pass in Louisiana, had planned to take in more gas on Tuesday than on Monday.

Cheniere said Corpus Christi and Sabine Pass "sustained no damage from Nicholas and continue to produce LNG as normal."

Cameron LNG's Cameron plant in Louisiana, the fourth U.S. Gulf Coast LNG export plant, was expected to take in the same amount of gas on Tuesday as the day before, according to the Refinitiv data.

Officials at Cameron said Nicholas "continues to be primarily a rain event, with essentially no impact to our operations."
