Venture Global LNG (“Venture Global”) is a long-term, low-cost provider of American-produced liquefied natural gas. The company’s two Louisiana-based export projects service the global demand for North American natural gas and support the long-term development of clean and reliable North American energy supplies. Using reliable, proven technology in an innovative plant design configuration, Venture Global’s modular, mid-scale plant design will replace traditional designs as it allows for the same efficiency and operational reliability at significantly lower capital cost.

The Calcasieu Pass Facility has an inside-the-fence combined-cycle gas-turbine (CCGT) power plant (~720 MW) consisting of GE 7EAs that will use feed-gas together with the boil off gas, HRSG and A200 steam turbines to produce the power required to drive the electric motors of the liquefiers.  Our “5 on 2” gas turbine to steam turbine configuration allows for significant flexibility for maintenance or down times, allowing the facility to have extremely high availability for production. There will also be one aeroderivate gas turbine for startup and peaking needs.
