Venture Global LNG Inc. and Kiewit have announced that Kiewit has been awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Calcasieu Pass LNG export project under development in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, US.
Under the terms of the turnkey EPC contract, Kiewit Louisiana Co. will design, engineer, construct, commission, test and guarantee the facility, which carries a 10 million tpy nameplate. Completion is expected in 2022.
The Calcasieu Pass facility will employ a process solution from GE Oil & Gas LLC, part of Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) that utilises mid-scale, modular, factory-fabricated liquefaction trains as well as a 5×2 711 MW CCGT to support the trains’ electric-drive system. Construction of the facility will commence by early 2019 following the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the Final Order from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is currently scheduled to be issued no later than 22 January 2019.
The Calcasieu Pass project has signed binding 20-year offtake agreements with Shell, BP, Edison S.p.A., Galp, Repsol and PGNiG.
