Venture Global to ship 1st Calcasieu Pass cargo as carrier docks at Louisiana plant

US liquefaction plant developer Venture Global LNG is to ship the first commissioning cargo from its Calcasieu Pass terminal in Louisiana following the arrival of the 174,000-cbm tanker Yiannis.

The 2021-built LNG carrier, owned by Greece’s Maran Gas, docked at the Calcasieu Pass facility on Monday, according to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue.

LNG Prime contacted Venture Global LNG for a comment on the matter but we did not receive a reply by the time this article was published.

Venture Global said in a report sent to FERC last week it had started producing LNG at its Calcasieu Pass terminal on January 19.

After that, it requested permission from FERC to “load Calcasieu Pass’s first LNG export commissioning cargo on or after February 9, 2022.”

The Calcasieu Pass project is the seventh operational large LNG export facility in the US.

Once fully completed by contractor Kiewit, Calcasieu Pass will produce about 10 mtpa of LNG from 18 modular units configured in 9 blocks.

Calcasieu Pass has contracts with Shell, BP, Edison, Galp, Repsol, PGNiG, Sinopec’s unit Unipec, and CNOOC.

This is Venture Global’s first LNG export plant but the company plans to build three more export facilities.

Recently, McDermott’s unit CB&I secured a storage tank contract from a unit of Venture Global for the first phase of the planned Plaquemines LNG project in Louisiana.

The full project would have 20 mtpa capacity, four tanks, and three jetties.
