PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT
Property, plant and equipment, net consists of LNG terminal costs and fixed assets and other, as follows (in millions):
Depreciation expense was $111 million and $89 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $219 million and $159 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
We realized offsets to LNG terminal costs of $39 million and $170 million in the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively, that were related to the sale of commissioning cargoes because these amounts were earned or loaded prior to the start of commercial operations of the respective Train of the SPL Project, during the testing phase for its construction. We did not realize any offsets to LNG terminal costs in the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.
The entire disclosure for long-lived, physical assets used in the normal conduct of business and not intended for resale. Includes, but is not limited to, accounting policies and methodology, roll forwards, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, including composite depreciation, accumulated depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, useful lives and method used, income statement disclosures, assets held for sale and public utility disclosures.
