German engineering giant Siemens has been contracted for the supply of three boil-off compressor (BOG) packages for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG project.
The new LNG export facility, Calcasieu Pass, is currently under construction in southwestern Louisiana’s Cameron Parish, approximately 50 miles south of Lake Charles.
Once fully commissioned, the facility is expected to produce 10 mtpa of clean liquefied natural gas that will be exported to global markets, the company said in its statement.
The LNG project is implemented by Venture Global Calcasieu Pass subsidiary of Venture Global LNG, a Gulf Coast LNG developer. Engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPC) are contracted to Kiewit, who selected Siemens in connection with the balance of plant scope.
Siemens’ scope of supply covers the engineering, manufacturing and testing of two centrifugal BOG compression packages and one reciprocating BOG compression package. All compressors will be directly driven by electric motors.
Site construction is underway, and the compression trains are expected to ship in summer and fall 2020.
