In his ministrial statement to Parliament yesterday Polye produced the status report of the project indicating significant achievements in terms of building of the facility against the estimated timeline of 40 million hours used, bringing the overall completion to more than 80% on track. 
According to Polye the project is progressing in development phases and is on schedule for the first LNG deliveries to begin next year.
