Our companies share a commitment to keeping energy markets well supplied while also advancing clean energy goals, through the export of low-cost US LNG to emerging economies,” said Mike Sabel, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Venture Global LNG. “The CP2 LNG facility, adjacent to Calcasieu Pass, will build on our vision of making Louisiana an international hub for innovation to enhance global energy security.”
Today, the company is also announcing several milestones in its pre-FID activities for Plaquemines LNG:
- Expected to soon take formal FID and close project financing.
- Launched construction in August 2021 due to historic market demand and robust financial support for the project.
- Sold 14 million tonnes of the 20 MTPA nameplate capacity. The company expects to announce contracts for the remaining capacity in the coming weeks.
- Awarded engineering and procurement contracts to world class companies including KZJV, Baker Hughes, UOP Honeywell and CB&I.
“In today’s global market, execution and speed matter, and Venture Global is uniquely positioned to quickly deliver US LNG capacity to meet the world’s growing demand for energy,” said Mike Sabel, CEO of Venture Global. “With that in mind-and building on the successful record of 29 months from FID to first LNG production at Calcasieu Pass- our company has moved forward with an expedited schedule for Plaquemines. While we conclude the project financing process, we have taken a number of steps to accelerate our project, including the award of major EPC contracts and launching construction in the fall of 2021.”
