Siemens has announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply three boil-off compressor (BOG) packages for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG project.

The Calcasieu Pass project is currently under construction in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, approximately 50 miles south of Lake Charles. Once fully commissioned, the facility is expected to produce 10 million tpy of LNG, which will then be exported to global markets.

The LNG project is being implemented by Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, LLC, a subsidiary of Venture Global LNG, Inc., a Gulf Coast LNG developer. Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) management are contracted to Kiewit, who selected Siemens in connection with the balance of plant scope.

According to the statement, Siemens’ scope of supply covers the engineering, manufacturing and testing of two centrifugal BOG compression packages, as well as one reciprocating BOG compression package. All compressors will be directly driven by electric motors.

Matthew Russell, Executive Vice President of LNG for Siemens, said: “Siemens has a long track record of providing cryogenic BOG compressors for the LNG industry worldwide.

"The Calcasieu Pass LNG Project involves an innovative modular, mid scale configuration that enables Venture Global to produce low-cost LNG with a shorter construction schedule. Siemens was able to tailor a custom solution with added flexibility to match the EPC’s project schedule and start-up sequence.”

Site construction is already underway, and the compression trains are expected to ship in summer and fall of this year.
