Venture Global wins approval for final block at Calcasieu Pass LNG plant

US LNG export player Venture Global LNG has received approval from federal regulators to introduce fluids into the Block 9 liquefaction modules at its Calcasieu Pass plant in Louisiana.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said in a filing dated July 22 it had approved Venture Global’s recent request to “introduce hazardous fluids into Liquefaction Block 9”.

Prior to this, FERC gave green light to Venture Global to commission the block on July 8, according to a separate filling.

With this, Venture Global received approvals to commission all the 18 modular units configured in 9 blocks.

Following completion later this year, the project will have a capacity to produce 10 mtpa of LNG or 1.3 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d).

Venture Global already won approval from FERC to place in service the first four liquefaction blocks.

Earlier this month, the firm asked the regulator to put in service the fifth and the sixth liquefaction blocks at its Calcasieu Pass plant.

Since the first commissioning cargo in March, most of the Calcasieu Pass shipments landed in Europe due to high prices and as European countries look to reduce reliance on Russian gas supplies.

The Calcasieu Pass project is the seventh US liquefaction and export facility to begin producing LNG since 2016.

It receives its feedgas through Venture Global’s TransCameron pipeline, which has interconnections with the ANR, TETCO, and Bridgeline pipelines.

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