Venture Global Calcasieu Pass completes roof raising for second LNG storage tank
Published by Will Owen,
Venture Global LNG, Inc. has successfully raised the roof for its second LNG storage tank at its Calcasieu Pass LNG export facility in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
This major project milestone was completed nearly three months ahead of schedule and comes a mere nine months after the project’s final investment decision (FID).
The 1.8 million pound tank dome and assembly were air raised into place on 19 May, less than a month after the raising of the first LNG tank roof on 24 April. Air raising allows for better and safer access as well as a faster construction schedule, as the roof can be erected concurrently with the shell. The tank dome was raised in 1 hour and 20 minutes using 0.25 psi of pressure. CB&I Storage Tank Solutions, a division of McDermott International, Inc., is constructing the project’s dual 200 000 m3 tanks.
Venture Global has also announced that the first modules for the export facility’s 720 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant have now arrived at site. Key components of the gas insulated switchgear (GIS) have been successfully installed on schedule, and the site has also begun receiving and setting modules for the air cooled condenser (ACC).
