US firm Chart Industries said that it has received an order to provide equipment for the second phase of Venture Global’s Plaquemines LNG export project in Louisiana. Chart said it has booked the equipment order worth USD 45M from Baker Hughes. This order is for the production of six brazed aluminum heat exchanger assemblies (BAHX) and cold boxes. These are the first six of the anticipated 18 BAHX assemblies and cold boxes for the full 10 mtpa Plaquemines Phase 2 facility.
Plaquemines LNG will deploy Venture Global’s liquefaction trains identical to the units at its Calcasieu Pass project.
It would have up to thirty-six 0.626 mtpa liquefaction trains, configured in eighteen blocks.
The first phase includes a capacity of 10 mtpa while the full project would have a 20 mtpa capacity, four tanks, and three jetties.
Venture Global aims to take formal FID on Plaquemines LNG “soon” and close project financing.
Also, the company sold 14 million tonnes of the 20 mtpa nameplate capacity and expects to announce contracts for the remaining capacity “in the coming weeks”.
