Venture Global picks Honeywell tech for Plaquemines LNG

US LNG firm Venture Global LNG has awarded a contract to compatriot Honeywell to provide technology for the Plaquemines LNG export project in Louisiana.

Honeywell said in a statement on Tuesday that Venture Global’s Plaquemines LNG export development would use a series of technologies from Honeywell UOP to remove various contaminants from natural gas to applicable LNG specification prior to liquefaction.

Under the contract, Honeywell UOP would provide engineering, procurement and fabrication services for the LNG pretreatment units which, when completed, would pretreat feed gas for the facility, it said.

The project will include a Honeywell UOP mercury removal unit (MRU) and multiple trains each consisting of an acid gas removal unit (AGRU) and SeparSIV unit.

Taken together, these modular units wouldremove mercury, carbon dioxide, sulfur, water and heavy hydrocarbons to applicable LNG specification from 1.6 billion standard cubic feet per day of natural gas so it can be liquefied and safely transported to customers on ocean-going vessels, Honeywell said.

The firm did not disclose the financial details of the contract.

This contract builds upon a deal in 2019 when Venture Global selected Honeywell modular LNG pretreatment technology for its Calcasieu Pass Export facility.

Venture Global already shipped two cargoes from the Calcasieu Pass plant.

Once completed, Calcasieu Pass will produce about 10 mtpa of LNG from 18 modular units configured in 9 blocks. The plant is the seventh large LNG export facility in the US.

On the other side, the first phase of the Plaquemines LNG project includes a capacity of 10 mtpa while the full project would have 20 mtpa capacity, four tanks, and three jetties.

Venture Global said that Plaquemines LNG would start production in 2024 but the company has not yet announced a final investment decision on the development.
