McDermott announces first liquid from Cameron LNG Train 1

McDermott International has announced that Train 1 of the Cameron LNG project in Hackberry, La., has begun producing liquefied natural gas.

While production is in the initial phases, this significant project milestone is a precursor to first cargo, which is expected later this quarter.

The McDermott project team reached the milestone while maintaining a continuous focus on safety, and liquid production marks another major milestone at the project.

“When a facility starts producing a product, it is always a significant accomplishment, especially for such a large-scale project like Cameron LNG,” said Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America.

“We are proud of our project team for this achievement and for their exceptional safety performance during the construction phase. Once Train 1 is at full production and we have completed Trains 2 and 3, this facility will be one of the largest producers and exporters of LNG to markets around the world.”

Since the initial award in 2014, McDermott and its joint venture partner on the project, Chiyoda, have provided the engineering, procurement and construction for the Cameron LNG project. 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.
