McDermott and its partners, Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachary Group, recently announced the start of commercial operation of Train 2 at the Freeport LNG project owned by Freeport LNG Development LP.
Mark Coscio, McDermott's Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: "We continue to advance the Freeport LNG Project with another significant accomplishment, the commercial operation of Train 2 […] congratulations to the joint venture (JV) project team who has maintained a commitment to safety and quality. Now we turn our full attention to delivery of the final train."
Zachary Group, as the 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. Chiyoda later joined the JV partnership for work related to Train 3. The project scope includes three pre-treatment trains, a liquefaction facility with three trains, a second loading berth and a 165 000 m3 full containment LNG storage tank.
Freeport LNG Train 3 remains on track to meet its previously announced schedule, with initial production of LNG scheduled for 1Q20.
