Venture Global to develop LNG export facility in Louisiana

Venture Global LNG

Venture Global LNG is developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility, the Calcasieu Pass Project, in southwestern Louisiana. The export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, will be 203 acres along the Calcasieu Ship Channel where it meets the Gulf of Mexico.

The Calcasieu Pass Project has received authorization from the US Department of Energy to export 10 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG to countries with which the US already has a free trade agreement (FTA). Additionally, the project is seeking authorization from both the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the US Department of Energy to export 10.0 million tonnes per annum of LNG to non-FTA countries.

The timeline for the project includes the regulatory and government filing process and securing commercial agreements through the year 2016, with operations beginning in late 2019.
