McDermott International, Inc., along with its partners, Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachry Group, has announced that commercial operations have commenced at Train 1 of the Freeport LNG project in Texas, US.

Mark Coscio, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “The past few months have brought significant accomplishments for Train 1 of the Freeport LNG project – starting with introduction of feed gas in July, first liquid in August, shipment of first cargo in September and now commercial operation.

“Congratulations to the joint venture project team whose commitment to safety and quality has remained strong throughout the project.”

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.

McDermott claims Trains 2 and 3 remain on target to meet their previously announced schedules, with first liquid from Train 2 being announced on 6 December, and Train 3 initial production of LNG scheduled for 1Q20.
