Calcasieu Pass – Quick Facts

WHY CALCASIEU PASS & EXPORTING LNG ARE IMPORTANT

Venture Global is a long-term, low-cost producer of American liquefied natural gas. The low-cost strategy is based on using a highly efficient, modular, mid-scale LNG liquefaction technology that lowers capital costs and expands opportunities for North American LNG exports. Calcasieu Pass will provide clean and reliable North American natural gas to global markets.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, LLC, a subsidiary of Venture Global LNG, is developing Calcasieu Pass, an LNG export facility in southwestern Louisiana’s Cameron Parish, less than 50 miles south of Lake Charles. Some key project features include:

- A 930-acre plot with more than a mile of deep water frontage
- Two ship loading berths for LNG vessels carrying a capacity of up to 185,000 cubic meters
- Two 200,000 cubic meter LNG storage tanks
- TransCameron Pipeline will be a single 42-inch diameter, 24 mile long pipeline that will extend from interconnection points within the vicinity of Grand Cheniere Station in Cameron Parish, Louisiana
- An electrically driven, 611 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant with an additional 25 MW gas-fired turbine

I am writing to express my strong support for the Venture Global Calcasieu Pass project and the related TransCameron Pipeline. [...] The last decade has created unprecedented opportunities for business growth and job creation throughout the U.S. Nowhere is this more evident than in Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast — America’s energy coast.
