First cargo departs Freeport LNG Train 2
McDermott International with its partners, Chiyoda International Corporation and Zachry Group, said that the first commissioning cargo has been shipped from Freeports LNG’s Train 2.
Earlier this month, Train 2 of the Freeport LNG project on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas started producing the chilled fuel.
McDermott and its partners noted in a statement that the commissioning cargo is soon to be followed by the substantial completion of the Train 2.
“The ongoing momentum of this project has accelerated us past multiple accomplishments, including Train 1’s introduction of feed gas, first liquid and first cargo. And, we are well on our way toward commercial operation for Train 2,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s senior VP for North, Central and South America.
Zachry Group, as the joint venture 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 Chiyoda joined the joint venture 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 cubic meters full containment LNG storage tank.
Freeport LNG Trains 2 and 3 remain on schedule with Train 3 initial production of LNG scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.
