Highlights

“The second quarter was highlighted by the achievement of a positive FID on Train 3 at the CCL Project, which reinforces our position as the leader in U.S. LNG. We continue to see significant opportunities in the market today, and we are leveraging our world-class LNG platform to deliver on our growth plans.”

The decrease in net loss was primarily due to increased income from operations as a result of additional Trains in operation at the SPL Project, increased derivative gain, decreased loss on modification or extinguishment of debt, and decreased net income attributable to non-controlling interest, partially offset by increased interest expense, net of amounts capitalized.
