US Approves Commissioning for Venture Global Louisiana LNG Facility

Venture Global is installing 18 modular liquefaction trains configured in nine blocks at Calcasieu to produce about 10 mtpa of LNG, equivalent to about 1.5 Bcf/d of natural gas.


U.S. LNG company Venture Global LNG received permission on Nov. 4 from federal regulators to start commissioning liquefaction systems at the company’s Calcasieu Pass LNG export plant in Louisiana.

Specifically, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Venture Global’s request to commission the Block 1 liquefaction modules and the South LNG tank at Calcasieu.

Venture Global filed for permission to build the project in September 2015 and received FERC approval to start construction in February 2019.
