McDermott International, with its partners, Chiyoda International Corporation and Zachry Group, informed that the second liquefaction train at Freeport LNG facility has started LNG production.
The company noted in its statement that the first liquid milestone at the facility located on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas, is a precursor to first cargo.
Zachry Group, as the joint venture lead, partnered with McDermott for the pre-FEED in 2011, followed by FEED works to support the early development stage of the project as a one-stop-shop solution provider for Trains 1 and 2. Later Chiyoda joined the joint venture partnership for work related to Train 3.
The project scope includes three pre-treatment trains, a liquefaction facility with three trains, a second loading berth and a 165,000-cbm full containment LNG storage tank.
Freeport LNG Trains 2 and 3 remain on schedule with Train 3 initial production of LNG scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.
