US LNG export project developer Venture Global LNG filed a request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for permission to start construction of LNG storage tank at the Calcasieu Pass project. 

In its filing with the regulator, Venture Global said it is requesting written authorization and a notice to proceed with activities associated with the LNG storage tank construction no later than May 31, 2019.

Venture Global said the scope of activities to be done on the storage tank at the Calcasieu Pass facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, includes the construction of the base slab following which the outer tank will be erected. Only once the roof on the outer tank has been raised will the construction of the inner tank commence.

Calcasieu Pass LNG export project received authorization to export up to 620 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per year of natural gas (1.7 Bcf/day) for a period of 25 years.

The 10 MTPA nameplate Calcasieu Pass facility will employ a process solution from Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) that utilizes mid-scale, modular, factory-fabricated liquefaction trains.

Venture Global has executed an integrated turnkey EPC contract with Kiewit to design, engineer, construct, commission, test and guarantee the Calcasieu Pass facility.

The company is also developing the 20 MTPA nameplate Plaquemines LNG export facility and associated Gator Express Pipeline in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Plaquemines LNG has executed a binding 20-year SPA with PGNiG.
