McDermott International with its joint venture partners, Chiyoda International Corporation and Zachry Group, introduced feed gas into Train 3 of the Freeport LNG Liquefaction project on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas.
The contractor noted in its statement on Tuesday that the Train 3 has now reached the final commissioning stage.
This marks a significant accomplishment for the project as the team works to complete the final train for the project, the statement reads.
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 Train 3 is on track to reach initial LNG production in the first quarter of 2020, the statement reads.
