McDermott International, along with its joint venture partner Chiyoda International Corporation has announced the final commissioning stage of Train 2 of the Cameron project, located in Hackberry, Louisiana.

This stage of the project includes the introduction of feed gas into Train 3 of the liquefaction export facility, the precursor for the production of LNG.

“Congratulations to everyone on the Cameron LNG project team for their continued commitment to the project delivery and high-quality standards as we work toward completion of Train 3,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice-President for North, Central and South America.

“Their hard work and strong safety performance have propelled us to the final train of the project, and we look forward to keeping this momentum through completion.”

McDermott and Chiyoda have delivered engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning for the project since it began.

The project includes three liquefaction trains with a projected export capacity of more than 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG, or approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet per day.

Cameron LNG Train 3 is on track to reach initial LNG production in the second quarter of 2020.
