New Fortress Energy Inc. (NFE) anticipates its offshore Altamira Floating LNG unit could become the first operating Mexican export facility in the coming weeks.

After delays that stretched the commissioning process, CEO Wes Edens told analysts during a fourth quarter call that the first volumes of liquefied natural gas were expected to be produced in the coming days, followed by its first cargo loading sometime in April.

“While it’s been a little bit delayed, it’s important to note that it still would be the fastest LNG installation in the history of the planet,” Edens said.
