If the fund-raising drive is successful, the company intends to build the gas plant’s seventh train, expected to boost output by 40%.

This train train is expected to cost $7bn to build, with another $3bn going on pipelines and other supporting infrastructure.

When complete, in five years’ time, output is expected to reach 30 million tonnes a year, an increase of 8 million tonnes.
