McDermott International, Inc., along with its joint venture partners Chiyoda International Corporation and Zachry Group, announced that they have been awarded a “mega contract” by Golden Pass Products LLC, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil affiliates, to build the export project in Sabine Pass, Texas.
McDermott, Chiyoda and Zachry Group will perform engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of three approximately 5.2 million tonne per annum (Mtpa) LNG trains with an expected production capacity of around 16 million tonnes of LNG per year. Work will commence in the first quarter of 2019 with a projected completion date in 2024.
“McDermott has extensive experience in executing major projects along the U.S. Gulf Coast,” said Richard Heo, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America. “We will apply not only our vertically-integrated capabilities but also some of the best practices and lessons learned for major construction projects in the region. We will also leverage the existing relationships we have with our partners and our customers to ensure that the Golden Pass project is a success.”
