Venture Global LNG Inc. last week requested US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) permission to introduce hazardous fluids at its 10-million tonne/year (tpy) Calcasieu Pass liquefaction plant’s south jetty and to load its first commissioning cargo on or after Feb. 9, 2022. The plant, in Calcasieu Parish, La., produced its first LNG on Jan. 19.
Calcasieu Pass LNG will use 18 0.6-million tpy liquefaction trains arranged in two-train production modules. Commercial operations are expected to begin mid-2022 (OGJ, Jan. 3, 2022, p. 54).
Venture Global expects its 20-million tpy Plaquemines LNG plant to begin operations in 2024. The company has two other 20-million tpy plants under development in Louisiana: Delta LNG in Plaquemines and CP2, adjacent to Calcasieu Pass in Calcasieu Parish.
