According to the statement, this includes the introduction of feed gas into Train 3 of the liquefaction export facility.
This is a major milestone for the Freeport LNG project as the team works to complete the final train for the project. The facility features the largest electric motor-driven refrigeration compressors within the US.
Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “Congratulations to the entire team for upholding the high safety and quality standards for which we're known.
“We have achieved substantial completion for Trains 1 and 2, and now focus on delivering Train 3 as it transitions from construction phase to startup.”
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. It is on schedule to commence initial LNG production in 1Q20.
