McDermott International Inc. has announced, alongside its partners Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachry Group, that Train 1 of the Freeport LNG project has reached the final commissioning stage.

The liquefaction project is located on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas, US. According to the statement, reaching the final commissioning stage includes the introduction of feed gas into Train 1 of the natural gas liquefaction and LNG export facility.

Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “We are extremely proud of the Freeport LNG project team for reaching this major milestone at this unique LNG production facility.

“First of its kind in the US, with the largest electric motor driven refrigeration compressors, the Freeport LNG facility will significantly improve the energy export capabilities we have in the US, and McDermott is pleased to be part of its development from the ground up. Once Train 1 is fully operational, it will have the capacity to produce more than 5 million tonnes of LNG per year.”

According to the statement, Zachry Group, as the joint venture lead, engaged 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 solutions provider. Later, Chiyoda joined the partnership and the joint team provided the engineering, procurement and construction of the facility, as well as the commissioning and initial operations for the project. The project consists of three pre-treatment trains, a liquefaction facility with three trains, a second loading berth, and a 165 000 m3 full containment LNG storage tank.
