Venture Global LNG has engaged Chart and Tecnicas Reunidas for its Calcasieu Pass LNG Project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
Chart Energy & Chemicals Inc. will provide its mid-scale modular technology, while Tecnicas Reunidas will provide the engineering design for the gas liquefaction and export facility project.
Commenting on these contract awards, William M. Wicker, CEO of Venture Global LNG, said: "Tecnicas Reunidas is a major international EPC contractor with extensive LNG, petrochemical and power project experience, specialising in large, turnkey industrial projects. Together with Chart's IPSMR® liquefaction technology and proprietary equipment, we have a scalable solution for implementing modular technology in a base load configuration. This innovation will enable us to provide low-cost LNG exports."
Chart has been selected as the liquefaction technology provider and manufacturer of the project’s liquefaction and other associated process units.
"Both Chart and Venture Global have a shared commitment to provide customers with low cost, clean, efficient and safe liquefied natural gas. We look forward to delivering on the Calcasieu Pass Project and working with Venture Global to create a new standard in LNG production," said Mike Durkin, President of Chart Energy & Chemicals.
Tecnicas Reunidas has been engaged to perform the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for the project, using Chart’s liquefaction technology. The scope of work includes designing a multi-train liquefaction plant with a total LNG capacity of 10 million tpy; two full containment LNG tanks, each with a capacity of 200 000 m3; a 600 MW combined cycle power plant and marine facilities, which will include two LNG ships' berths up to 185 000 m3.
The FEED work for the Calcasieu Pass Project commenced in August 2014 and is expected to be completed by mid-2015.
"Tecnicas Reunidas is pleased to provide our expertise in detailed and safe engineering to help Venture Global build a state-of-the-art LNG export facility," said Arthur Crossley, General Manager of Tecnicas Reunidas.
