LNG contractor McDermott International stated the production from the final train of the Freeport LNG project in Freeport, Texas, is set to start production in the first quarter of 2020.

McDermott added that the production would start in accordance with a previously disclosed schedule.

The Freeport LNG export project, controlled by billionaire Michael Smith, is being built at the existing LNG import terminal on Quintana Island near Freeport.

The project’s first three trains are expected to enter service in 2019 and 2020 after being delayed last year due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey that saw equipment lay-yards flooded.

Each of the three liquefaction trains is expected to have a capacity in excess of 5 million tonnes per year. The project is also developing a fourth liquefaction train with similar nominal production.

Earlier this month, Freeport LNG received approval from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to site, construct, and operate its fourth natural gas liquefaction train at the facility.

Freeport LNG’s Train 4 is expected to add over 5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG production to its existing project, increasing the total export capability of the 4-train facility to over 20 mtpa.
