The Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) project, Freeport LNG, is planned to break ground within the next few weeks.
Last week, federal regulators gave Freeport LNG the go ahead to begin preparing the site for construction. They will be building units called trains and pre-treatment facilities at the export terminal.
CB&I and Zachry Industrial won the contracts to build the first two trains - $2.5 billion each. Three liquefaction trains are planned total.
The facility has approval to export 1.8 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas to countries that do not have free-trade agreements with the U.S.
The first two units of the Sabine Pass LNG Project - another F.E. Moran Special Hazard Systems fire protection contract - are near completion.
