Train 3 of the Freeport LNG Liquefaction project on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas, has reached the final commissioning stage.

The announcement made today by McDermott International, Chiyoda International and Zachry Group also includes the introduction of feed gas into Train 3 of the liquefaction export facility.

“Congratulations to the entire team for upholding the high safety and quality standards for which we’re known,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice-President for North, Central and South America.

“We have achieved substantial completion for Trains 1 and 2, and now focus on delivering Train 3 as it transitions from construction phase to start up.”

The announcement marks a significant accomplishment for the project as the team works to complete the final train for the project.

The Freeport LNG facility incorporates the largest electric motor-driven refrigeration compressors within the US and, once filly completed and commercially operation, will significantly increase North America’s energy export capabilities.

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