US LNG export project developer Venture Global LNG has been granted a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) authorization to export Calcasieu Pass LNG volumes to non-free trade agreement (FTA) countries. 

Under the terms of the order, Venture Global LNG is authorized to export up to 620 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per year of natural gas (1.7 Bcf/day) for a period of 25 years from its facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

Exports will commence on the earlier of the date of first export or seven years from the date of the requested authorization, Venture Global LNG said in its statement.

This order follows the DOE’s previous authorizations to export to FTA countries, as well as the recent U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Order Granting Authorizations under Sections 3 and 7 of the Natural Gas Act to site, construct and operate the project.

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
