Venture Global LNG Inc. has applied with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to develop its fourth LNG liquefaction plant in Louisiana, the 20-million tonne/year (tpy) CP2 LNG. The new project will be built in Cameron Parish, adjacent to Venture Global's 10-million tpy Calcasieu Pass LNG plant.
The company will also build the 48-in. OD, 87.5-mile CP Express pipeline, which will provide natural gas to the plant from an interconnect in Jasper County, Tex. (OGJ Online, Feb. 2, 2021).Total cost of the project is expected to be more than $10 billion.
Venture Global’s 20-million tpy Plaquemines LNG plant is under construction in Plaquemines Parish. It’s also developing the 20-million tpy Delta LNG plant in Plaquemines Parish, having filed its application for the project with FERC fourth-quarter 2019. Delta would be built in two 10-million tpy phases, and would be supplied by the planned 42-in. OD, 283-mile Delta Express pipeline from interconnections near Alto, La.
The company plans to capture and sequester a total of 1-million tpy of carbon dioxide between the Calcasieu Pass, CP2, and Plaquemines plants (OGJ Online, May 27, 2021).
Calcasieu Pass LNG is the furthest advanced of Venture Global’s projects, with test production expected by end-2021 or early 2022 and commercial service by mid-2022.
