McDermott International, Inc., along with its partners, Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachry Group, has announced that Train 2 of the Freeport LNG project on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas, has started producing LNG.

McDermott claims that this significant project achievement is a precursor to first cargo.

Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “First liquid for Train 2 is another great accomplishment for the Freeport LNG project.

“As we progress to first cargo for Train 2, we applaud the diligence and commitment of the project team for driving Freeport LNG toward a safe completion.”

According to the statement, Zachry Group, as the joint venture (JV) 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 on, Chiyoda joined the JV partnership for work related to Train 3. The project scope includes three pretreatment trains, a liquefaction facility with three trains, a second loading berth and a 165 000 m3 full containment LNG storage tank.

Freeport LNG Trains 2 and 3 remain on schedule with Train 3 initial production of LNG scheduled for 1Q20.
