“The contribution of IFM GIF’s equity interest in Train 2 is the first step in a broader diversification strategy for Buckeye and further demonstrates IFM’s support of and commitment to Buckeye,” said Clark C. Smith, President and CEO of Buckeye. “The Train 2 equity interest will meaningfully increase our cashflows as well as decrease leverage. We also would like to congratulate the Freeport LNG team for the successful start-up of Train 2 and commencement of commercial operations.”
