We realized offsets to LNG terminal costs of $202 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019 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 Trains of the Liquefaction Projects, during the testing phase for its construction. We did not realize any offsets to LNG terminal costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and the three months ended June 30, 2019.
