Texas-based LNG engineer CB&I has been awarded a contract by Venture Global LNG for the engineering, procurement and construction of two LNG storage tanks for the company’s Calcasieu Pass export facility located in Southwest Louisiana.
According to the company’s statement on Wednesday, the deal is valued at $200 million.
Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG export plant is expected to produce 10.0 million tons per annum (MTPA) of the chilled fuel.
The facility’s design will use a liquefaction system with 18 mid-scale modular trains driven by electric motors to achieve optimum efficiency and reliability.
CB&I will provide, on a turn-key basis, two single-containment LNG storage tanks. Construction of the tanks is expected to begin in 2018.
According to the Venture Global LNG website, the two storage tanks will have a capacity of 200,000 cubic meters each.
