Venture Global LNG has expanded its development business to 60 million t/a to meet customer demand.
The company has increased its process equipment supply agreement with Baker Hughes, a GE (BHGE) company to 60 million t/a, under which BHGE will deliver comprehensive technology solutions for Venture Global’s LNG export facilities.
The agreement provides a guaranteed supply of modular liquefaction trains, and power generation and electrical distribution equipment that will be standardised across Venture’s Calcasieu Pass, Plaquemines LNG projects.
The Calcasieu Pass project is developing an LNG export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US with a 39 km, 42 inch (1,067 mm) diameter natural gas pipeline connected to three inter- and intrastate pipelines, with an in-service target of mid-2020.
The Plaquemines LNG project is developing an LNG facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, where Venture has proposed that two 42 inch diameter pipelines will be constructed to connect to existing interstate natural gas pipelines.
Co-CEOs Bob Pender and Mike Sabel issued a joint statement, which said, “With this expanded 60 million t/a commitment from BHGE, we can grow our business to meet the increasing demand for our low cost LNG from our international customers.
“Having fully contracted Calcasieu Pass and anticipating completion of Plaquemines LNG, we are pleased to announce this expansion to meet additional customer demand.
“We believe our model of mid-scale modular liquefaction is the future of low-cost LNG production.”
