Freeport LNG has reached final commissioning on Train 1 of its liquefaction plant on Quintana Island, Freeport, Tex. McDermott International Inc., along with partners Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachry Group, have introduced feed gas into Train 1. Once Train 1 is fully operational it will produce more than 5 million tonnes/year of LNG.

The project includes three pretreatment trains, a liquefaction plant with three trains, a second loading berth, and a 165,000-cu m full-containment LNG storage tank.

Zachry Group, as the joint-venture lead, engaged McDermott for the pre-front-end engineering and design in 2011, followed by FEED. Chiyoda joined the partnership later and the joint team provided engineering, procurement, and construction, as well as commissioning and initial operations for the project.

Freeport LNG anticipates adding a fourth train by 2021, bringing total plant capacity to more than 20 million tpy.
