Venture Global LNG has awarded Kiewit the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Calcasieu Pass LNG export project under development in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
Under the terms of the turnkey EPC contract, Kiewit Louisiana Co. will design, engineer, construct, commission, test and guarantee the facility, which carries a 10 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) nameplate. Completion is expected in 2022.
The 10 Mtpa Calcasieu Pass facility will employ a comprehensive process solution from GE Oil & Gas, LLC, part of Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) that utilises mid-scale, modular, factory-fabricated liquefaction trains as well as a 5×2 711 MW CCGT to support the trains’ electric-drive system. Construction of the facility will commence by early 2019 following the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the Final Order from the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is currently scheduled to be issued no later than January 22, 2019.
The Calcasieu Pass project has signed binding 20-year offtake agreements with Shell, BP, Edison S.p.A., Galp, Repsol and PGNiG. The company is also developing the 20 Mtpa Plaquemines LNG export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, which has executed its first binding 20-year offtake agreement with PGNiG. Venture Global LNG expects to take formal final investment decisions (FID) on both its Calcasieu Pass and Plaquemines LNG projects in 2019.
