Successful String Test of Calcasieu Pass System Moves Project Forward

Venture Global LNG had a successful string test of the first Venture Global Calcasieu Pass mixed-refrigerant compression system at Baker Hughes’ testing facility in Massa, Italy. 

The string test proves the engineering, functionality, and performance of the Calcasieu Pass process system and comes 7 months after the final investment decision for the project. Baker Hughes was awarded a contract in August and granted notice to proceed on the construction of its LNG technology solution for the project.

The 10-mtpa LNG project is in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, on a 930-acre site located where the Calcasieu Ship Channel meets the US Gulf of Mexico. Commercial operations are expected in 2022. The project includes a process solution from Baker Hughes that utilizes efficient, mid-scale, modular liquefaction trains that are factory-fabricated in Italy and shipped complete to the Calcasieu Pass site.
