The first cargo to be used for commissioning the Golden Pass LNG terminal is anticipated to arrive during October 2010.

The cargo will be shipped to the Sabine Pass, Texas, facility from the Port of Ras Laffan in Qatar aboard a Q-Flex LNG tanker, currently one of the largest LNG carriers in the world.

The Golden Pass LNG terminal includes two berths for unloading double-hulled LNG ships; five LNG storage tanks with capacity of 155,000 cubic meters each; vaporization equipment to warm the LNG to its natural gas state; and pipeline facilities and equipment to transport the natural gas from the terminal to customers.

The Golden Pass LNG terminal will have the capacity to deliver the equivalent of 2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas, when it reaches full operation. This represents enough natural gas to meet the average daily needs of about 10 million U.S. households.

The Golden Pass LNG terminal is a joint venture owned 70% by Qatar Petroleum International (QPI), the international arm of Qatar Petroleum (QP), and the remaining by ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips.

“Golden Pass LNG is looking forward to the commencement of terminal operations. The dedication of many employees and contractors has contributed to the development of this world-class facility,” said Raymond Jones, President, Golden Pass LNG.
