Innovations for a specialized market
McDermott is one of the most experienced engineering and construction firms serving the LNG market. We built the first LNG regasification import terminal in the United States, and over the years, we have developed a number of processes and technologies that benefit our customers. These include new methods for liquefaction, tank insulation, BTU reduction, inlet air cooling and other proprietary processes.
In addition, McDermott has extensive experience with the key processes and equipment that are utilized in baseload liquefaction plants, including receiving and gas metering, acid gas removal, dehydration, mercury removal, refrigeration, LNG storage and loading, and offsites and utilities. We had complete design-build responsibility for the PERU LNG export facility, the first baseload liquefaction plant in South America, which completed in 2010.
McDermott is currently building two LNG liquefaction plants on the United States Gulf Coast—the Cameron LNG facility in Hackberry, Louisiana, and the Freeport LNG facility in Freeport, Texas.
