Venture Global LNG wraps up $2.5 billion bond offering

US liquefaction plant developer Venture Global LNG said it has completed its $2.5 billion offering of senior secured notes.

The company’s unit Venture Global Calcasieu Pass issued the notes in two series.

The first is a series of 3.875% senior secured notes due 2029 in the amount of $1.25 billion and the second includes 4.125% senior secured notes due 2031 worth $1.25 billion.

Moreover, the 2029 notes will mature on August 15, 2029 while the 2031 notes will mature on August 15, 2031, according to Venture Global LNG.

Venture Global Calcasieu Pass aims to use the net proceeds from the offering to prepay certain amounts outstanding under its existing senior secured first lien credit facilities.

In addition, it also plans to pay breakage and hedge termination costs in connection with such prepayment and pay fees and expenses in connection with the offering.

Venture Global LNG said earlier this year that it could start first exports from its Calcasieu Pass LNG facility in Louisiana by the end of this year with full operations planned in mid-2022.

The firm also plans to take a final investment decision on its Plaquemines LNG project this year.

Both of the projects recently received a boost after Poland’s PGNiG agreed to buy more LNG under its existing contracts.

As a result, PGNiG’s contracted volume from Venture Global LNG would increase to 5.5 million mt or 7.4 bcm of gas per year.
